Prudential Spirit of Community Award
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards recognize students in middle and high school grades who have made meaningful contributions to their communities through volunteer service. These prestigious awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the NASSP, are presented annually on the local, state and national level.
Castilleja reviews the applications of its students and selects one middle school and one high school Local Honoree who then advance to the state level. The top middle and high school volunteer in each state are named State Honorees in February, and 2-10 runners-up in each state are name Distinguished Finalists. State Honorees receive $1,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. in May. National Honorees receive additional $5,000 awards and a $5,000 grant for the nonprofit charitable organizations of their choice.
