It is with great pleasure that the Junior League of Baltimore, Inc. announces the Sustainers' Service Award. Named in honor of the League's most experienced volunteers, the award is a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to be given annually to a female graduating senior who has performed outstanding volunteer service during her public high school years. Nominations for the Sustainers' Service Award may come from any public high school administration, guidance staff, or faculty member, or from any member of the Junior League. Neither financial need nor academic standing will be determining factors in selecting the recipient; the sole criterion will be the quality of the candidate's volunteer service.
Nominations must be made on the application form, available here, and returned to the Junior League of Baltimore office (5902 York Road Baltimore, MD 21212) no later than April 30, 2012. The application must be accompanied by written verification of both the candidate's volunteer service and plans to continue her education. The winner will be selected by the first week of May, and scholarship funds will be paid directly to the post-secondary institution to be attended by the recipient.
The Sustainers' Service Award marks the Junior League's 14th year to commend the voluntary activities of high school students, and we hope it is just the start of many more years doing so!
