2nd Annual School & Group Awards | 2017-18 School Year

INSPIRING SERVICE is recognizing schools and groups that have dedicated personal time and effort to improve communities through service to others.

Connectedness and Purposeful Networks

We are delighted to offer awards for personal as well as group, class, or school achievement. If we can recognize through an inclusive view of activity across a community, we can accelerate our progress and inspire others to action.

The 2017-18 Inspiring Service Awards have been created with a special emphasis to connect personal and collective community service with progress toward the UN Global Goals. The awards are attainment based, using service hours as a measure for contribution of time, energy, and talent invested in the causes you care about. This structure underscores one of our core beliefs: everyone has the possibility to achieve greatness through personal commitment.

Thanks to student volunteers, causes, nonprofits, and projects receive desperately needed support. Your students are making choices today that impact others, which creates a better tomorrow for all. Service activities completed this school year are used for consideration of this award: June 1, 2017 through April 1 5, 2018.
