ABOUT THE AWARD
In recognition of your outstanding
volunteer achievements, the Student Involvment and Employment Office is proud to announce the availability of
the President's Volunteer Service Award, a prestigious national honor
offered in recognition of volunteer commitment.
Established in 2003, this award is given
by the President of the United States and honors individuals, families
and groups who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer
service over the course of 12 months.
To qualify for the President's Volunteer Service Award, volunteers
simply submit a record of their service hours to the Student Involvment and Employment Office by April 1, we
will verify the service, and deliver the award in May of each year.

months; recipients can qualify for a new award each year.
