Additional Information: The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards recognize and honor students in middle and high school who have shown a strong commitment to their communities through volunteer work and service. The program was created in 1995 and is sponsored by Prudential in cooperation with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). Local honorees are selected through participating schools and organizations in November, and from these selected winners, two state honorees are chosen in each state and the District of Columbia.

Previous state honorees may be eligible to reapply if and only if their submitted activities are significantly different and unique from any previously honored activities.
