The Youth Power and Hope Awards program honors Indiana students in fifth through eighth grades who are leaders in their communities.
Five winners will be selected to participate in a special community-service focused symposium on Nov. 11 at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum featuring former Indiana Fever star Tamika Catchings and will travel to Indianapolis in December to attend a special program in their honor. In addition, winners will be featured in Electric Consumer.
“One of the founding principles of KREMC is a commitment to community,” said Jennifer Barger, KREMC communications specialist. “We are proud to be a part of recognizing the community service efforts of our youth.”
Past award recipients include students who have initiated a coat drive for the underprivileged, supported patients at Riley Hospital for Children, worked with special needs children, volunteered at a local animal shelter, raised money for the American Cancer Society, and more.
Applicants must submit an application, examples of how they have been involved in their local communities, and a reference letter from a trusted adult. Visit Electric Consumer’s website for an application and to learn about past award recipients. Applications are due Friday, Sept. 29.
