The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program is the United States' largest youth recognition program based exclusively on volunteer community service. The program was created in 1995 by Prudential in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) to honor middle level and high school students for outstanding service to others at the local, state, and national level.
The program's goals are to applaud young people who already are making a positive difference in their towns and neighborhoods, and to inspire others to think about how they might contribute to their communities.
In the United States, each program year begins in September, when information and application instructions are mailed to all middle level and high schools in the 50 United States and Washington, D.C., and to the following officially designated local organizations:

* County 4-H organizations
* American Red Cross chapters
* Affiliates of HandsOn Network
Through these schools and local organizations, students are encouraged to complete an online application <by November 5.
Local Honorees are selected at participating schools and organizations in November. From these winners, an independent judging organization names the top middle level and high school volunteer in each state and Washington, D.C. Results are announced in early February. Then, 10 National Honorees are chosen by a panel of prominent public figures, and announced at a special ceremony in Washington, D.C., in May.
Any young person who:
* is in grades 5-12 as of November 5,
* is a legal resident of any U.S. state or Washington, D.C.,
* has engaged in a volunteer activity that occurred at least partly during the 12 months prior to the date of application, and
