Are you a student who's making a difference through volunteering? If so, you need to apply for a 2015 Prudential Spirit of Community Award. You could win $1,000 and a trip to Washington, D.C. next May. Go to http://spirit.prudential.com or www.nassp.org/spirit to access the online application. The deadline is November 4, 2014.
A wide array of local scholarship applications are available in the High School Counseling office.
