Presidential Service Award
The Blue Valley North High School community believes community service is an important component of a student's educational responsibility. A student benefits from activities that help those in need while benefiting those less fortunate and promoting the general welfare of our society. This service takes students beyond the parameters of their everyday social, cultural, and economic circles.
Involvement in volunteer service also helps prepare young people to assume leadership roles in their communities. In addition, youth can solve social problems through their service efforts while developing a greater sense of responsibility and compassion. Encouraging young people to contribute their talents and abilities for the benefit of others is one of our nation's most important responsibilities.
The Award is given to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding volunteer service and civic participation over the course of a twelve-month period. Blue Valley North's annual year is April 1 through March 31.
