Do you know a high school student who volunteers? Recognize them!

Do you know a 9-12th grade student who volunteers in our community?  Someone who builds houses for Habitat, visits with the homeless through PACEM, goes on a mission trip each summer, or organizes fundraisers for other students to participate in?  We want to know about it!  The United Way Student Service Award recognizes students from EACH of the public and private high schools.  Please share the information below with students who you know who care about our community.  Deadline is on March 24th.  Don't miss this opportunity to recognize the important work that young people are doing.
