School District Looking for 'Hands on Heroes'

Nominations for students who volunteered after Hurricane Sandy will be accepted until Friday, March 15

The Lacey Township School District is now accepting nominations for Hands on Heroes.

"We know the importance of the role of  a volunteer.  When volunteers decide to serve, they are not looking for recognition or reward, they are only seeking to help others," a statement on the school district's website said.

During Superstorm Sandy many Lacey students volunteered to help those impacted.

"Student volunteers often get little attention, but they have such an important impact," the statement said.

Student nominees will be spotlighted on the school district's website and recognized for their service during an evening ceremony in April 2013, National Volunteer Month. Those nominated and their parents will be invited. 

"We want to recognize students who gave of their time and talents to make a positive impact in our community or in another who was affected by the storm," the statement said.

The student who is nominated should have:

  • Made an outstanding contribution to our community through volunteer service.
  • Demonstrated service, cooperation, or leadership.
  • Served as a role model for others in their community.
  • Inspired others.

To nominate a student, write a letter or email to Dr. Brower at sbrower@laceyschools.org noting how the student was an inspiration because of their volunteerism. Also, explain how the student's efforts made a difference.

Nominations will be accepted until Friday, March 15.

Love it - great idea to focus on the kids serving their community who, unfortunately, we don't hear enough about!

Is it just for kids that volunteered after or can other student volunteers be nominated?
