The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program is looking for Connecticut's top youth volunteers of 2013.
Now through Nov. 6, Connecticut students in grades 5-12 who have volunteered in the past 12 months are invited to apply for 2013 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards by visiting http://spirit.prudential.com and www.nassp.org/spirit.
Connecticut's top youth volunteers of 2012 were Sanam Rastegar, 18, of Weston and Patrick Briscoe, 14, of Newtown. As State Honorees, Sanam and Patrick received $1,000 awards, engraved silver medallions, and all-expense-paid trips to Washington, D.C.
The awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), have been granted annually since 1995 to recognize middle and high school students for helping the less fortunate, promoting health and safety, protecting the environment, or volunteering in other ways.
