Are you familiar with The Congressional Award? “The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ award for young Americans.”
Scouts, Key Club, 4-H, Leos Club, JROTC, police and fire Explorers, library and civic programs, sports leagues, and any organization that includes youth volunteers or serves youth might want to consider steering those young people toward this prestigious yet reachable national recognition program.
Again, from the web site: “Each level involves setting goals in four program areas; Voluntary Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration. Earning the Award is a fun and interesting way to get more involved in something you already enjoy or something you’d like to try for the first time. You move at your own pace, on your own or with your friends. This is not an award for past accomplishments. Instead, you are honored for achieving your own challenging goals.”
