Volunteer Service/Recognition

*Beginning with the c/o 2016 there is no Service Requirement for graduation.*

2016-17 INSPIRING SERVICE AWARD FOR INDIVIDUALS: Recognizing 3 tiers of impact in our schools and communities.   

April 5 – May 5 ONLINE.

For STUDENTS, awards are earned at : 20, 40, and 100 hours of service in this current school year.

Each tier of award has different artifacts for recognition.  Some are digital (pdf awards, digital award videos, etc) as proof for resumes and job applications, while others are physical (certificates, pins, and medallions) which will be sent to the school.  Awards are attainment based, not 'one winner'.  We'd be thrilled to recognize hundreds of students this year instead of a handful.


Merit: 20 Service hours this school year and 4 photos.  More here...

Honor: 40 Service hours this school year and 8 photos.  More here...

Ambassador: 100 Service hours this school year and 12 photos.  More here...

The digital application process requests photos of the activities, projects, or people at the event in which you participated.  This streamlined submission enables a digital artifact to celebrate your impact and that you can see in job and scholarship interviews.

The application window is open from April 5 through May 5. To learn more:
