Kohl’s Cares nomination deadline nears
Nominations are accepted through March 15, and nominators must be 21 years or older. Through the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program, Kohl’s aims to honor young volunteers who have made a difference in their communities. Past winners have been recognized for a variety of activities, including delivering food baskets to disadvantaged families, raising awareness on the environment and endangered species and creating a foundation to raise money for cancer research.
Kohl’s will reward more than 2,300 kids nationwide on the store, regional and national levels for their volunteer efforts with more than $425,000 in scholarships and prizes. Youth volunteers are honored in two age categories: six to 12, and 13 to 18.
• Store Winners: Two nominees from each of the more than 1,100 Kohl’s stores nationwide will win a $50 Kohl’s gift card.
• Regional Winners: More than 200 of the store winners will win regional scholarships worth $1,000 toward post-secondary education.
• National Winners: Ten of the regional winners will receive the national award of a total of $10,000 in scholarships for post-secondary education, and Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner’s behalf.
In 2013, Kohl’s celebrates its 13th year of rewarding young volunteers.
