Kids do great things! From getting good grades to raising awareness of child abuse, America’s youth is remarkable.

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards has partnered with the National Association of Secondary School Principals to pay homage to some of America’s remarkable youth.

Each May, the top 10 youth volunteers are then selected and named “America’s Top 10 Youth Volunteers.” Out of more than 30,000 participants, these ten young people were chosen.

Now, Prudential is at it again with its call for entries for “Amazing Teens” until November 4, 2014.

The nation’s largest youth volunteer recognition program, the top national winners, selected by a distinguished judging panel with representatives from some of America’s leading service and education organizations, each receive $5,000, a gold medallion, a crystal trophy and a $5,000 Prudential Foundation grant for a charitable organization of their choice.
