Are you a young woman between the ages of 14 and 17 who volunteers in your community or school? Do you see challenges instead of obstacles? Hope instead of despair? If you are a young woman who believes in the power of volunteer action, then you may be eligible to win a Violet Richardson Award.
This award recognizes young women who make the community and the world a better place through volunteer efforts such as fighting drugs, crime and violence; cleaning up the environment; and working to end discrimination and poverty. Volunteer actions that benefit women and girls are particularly encouraged.
Winners are eligible to receive cash awards for themselves and their charitable organization.
If you are interested in applying for this award, please contact Crystal at 223-8882. Applications are available at the Redway Family Resource Center, South Fork High School and also online at www.si-redwoods.org. The deadline for applications is Dec. 1.
