The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards honor students in grades 5–12 for outstanding service to others at the local, state, and national levels. The program’s goals are to recognize young people who are making a positive difference.
Healthy schools and happy students go hand in hand!That’s why Deb is giving schools the tools to make hand hygiene fun with Deb’s Annual Happy Hands Contest. K–12 schools now have the opportunity to educate students about the importance of hand washing, while also allowing them to express their artistic sides through the creation of an original design for a Deb dispenser. Schools can win too. The schools with the most popular designs will receive a $500 donation from Deb and free custom dispensers for their school. This year Deb is giving back with Design for Donation. For each dispenser design submitted for the Happy Hands Contest, Deb will donate $2 to Helping Houston Rebuild to aid schools rebuilding after Hurricane Harvey.
The Youth Leadership for Service-Learning Excellence Award recognizes service-learning programs, including projects with long-term impact, which demonstrate outstanding youth leadership. The National Youth Leadership Council is seeking youth teams representing K–12 service-learning programs in which the service learning is tied to the curricula.
