Outstanding Service Project

This award is for a service learning project that may be run by an individual student or group of students whose project has a direct benefit to a community, as opposed to specific people or an individual. The project may address environmental issues, construct infrastructure that will benefit a community, involve the restoration of a community space or asset, or respond to a direct need in a community (eg. food, clothing, or book distribution). There are many types of projects that may fall into this category, so let your imagination run wild.   


  • A Grand Prize of US$5,000
  • Up to Three US$2,500 prizes

Prize money is awarded to the school to enable them to develop or grow a community service project.
