From May 1-3 2020, America’s top 102 youth volunteers of 2020 were recognized for their outstanding volunteer service at the 25th annual, and first-ever virtual, Prudential Spirit of Community Awards.
At the #PruSpirit2020 virtual events, honorees had opportunities to connect with each other through online project-sharing sessions, learn about service and advocacy from accomplished Spirit of Community alumni, and hear congratulatory remarks from special guests.
In recognition of the spirit of service that they have demonstrated in their communities, each of the 102 State Honorees were given $2,500 to donate toward the local COVID-19 response efforts of a nonprofit organization of their choice. These funds come in addition to the $1,000 scholarship and engraved silver medallion they earned as their states' top youth volunteers of 2020.

For the 2021 program year, please note: In the event that circumstances surrounding COVID-19 necessitate canceling the in-person event, a virtual event will be held and no trip to Washington, D.C. would be awarded.
