Do you know a middle schooler who is making a difference in your community? We want to hear from him or her!
Indiana’s electric cooperatives and their statewide magazine, Indiana Connection, are accepting applications for awards that recognize the community spirit of Indiana’s youth.
The Youth Power and Hope Awards program honors fifth through eighth graders who are leaders in their communities. The annual recognition program emphasizes the important role young Hoosiers play in shaping their communities.
Five winners will be selected to receive $500 and be featured in an upcoming issue of Indiana Connection. Past award recipients include students who have initiated a coat drive for the underprivileged, supported patients at Riley Hospital for Children, worked with special needs children, volunteered at a local animal shelter, raised money for the American Cancer Society, and more.
Applicants must submit an application, examples of how they have been involved in their local communities, and a reference letter from a trusted adult. Visit indianaconnection.org/?p=230 for an application and to learn about past award recipients.
