It is our pleasure to facilitate the recognition of the 2017-2018 Presidential Service Award Winners.  

Speaker 1:
The President's Volunteer Service Award is an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service and is administered by the Points of Light Foundation. 
Speaker 2:
Through a shared mission of inspiring more to answer the call to service, the President's Volunteer Service Award celebrates the impact we can all make in bettering our communities and our world.
Speaker 3: Presidential recognition sets you apart from your peers. It is a tremendous honor. Even though you may not seek recognition, your example can deliver a powerful message that encourages others to take action.  
Speaker 1:
Hours are measured over a 12-month period and/or cumulative hours over the years with the goal of volunteering 4,000 hours over a lifetime. 
Speaker 2:
The awards are offered in several categories " kids, teens, young adults, adults, and lifetime."    
Speaker 3:
Each category includes bronze, silver, gold and the highest honor, the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for those who contribute more than 4,000 hours of service in their lifetime.
