ABC Summer of Service Awards

Attention Billings kids and surrounding areas who help the community!

ABC, in partnership with Youth Service America, is calling on young change-makers to apply for an ABC Summer of Service Award. Winners receive a $1,000 award to help make a lasting, positive change in the world. Youth Service America and ABC6 station is looking for kids in the Billings area!

Who are we looking for?  Young people located in and around ABC-affiliate communities who are creating lasting, positive change through volunteer and community service projects. We're especially interested in ongoing, youth-led projects that highlight the creativity and commitment of young people working to meet the needs of others. If you are a young person already involved in volunteering, we want to hear your story of service!

The goal?  To  recognize young community change-makers, and help them on their mission to help others.

Youth ages 5-18 located in and around ABC-affiliate communities are eligible to submit their good work and be considered for an ABC Summer of Service Award.  Applications are due by midnight on September 1, 2013. Please note: Legally, if you are younger than 13, you must have a parent or guardian prepare and submit the application for you.

Apply by midnight on September 1, 2013.

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Applicants must have already implemented a service project in their community.  The ABC Summer of Service Award is recognizing youth that have already served their community.
  • All applicants are required to have a sponsoring organization or school.  The award check will be sent to the sponsoring organization or school.  The sponsoring organization or school will accept the award funds for the applicant and work with them to utilize the funds.  YSA cannot send award funds to an individual.

The ABC Summer of Service Awards, in collaboration with Disney Friends for Change, is an initiative that inspires kids and their families to make a lasting, positive change by helping people, communities, and the planet.
