In 2010, the Kansas City Chinese American Association (KCCAA) established an annual KCCAA Community Service Award to encourage primary and secondary school students in the greater Kansas City area to develop stronger awareness of public service and to participate actively in community service. In the past four years we have seen an increasing number of young students involving in volunteer works, particularly under the leadership of KCCAA Youth Hope Fund. This year will be the fifth year we give out awards, and the three categories will be as follows: first place award: $300; second place award $200; third place award: $100.
This award may be offered to any primary or secondary school student in the greater Kansas City area and any qualified student may apply.
An applicant must:
1. Be an elementary or secondary school student (grades 1 through 12).
2. Have participated in some form of voluntary work or community service (without compensation) during the past year.
3. Submit an application letter no more than one page (letter size or A4). The application statement should include the student’s name, school, and contact information for school; a description of the community service experience; the student’s reflections on lessons learned from that experience; name and contact information for the supervisor of the community service experience.
Applications must be received by January 21, 2015. The Education Committee of the Kansas City Chinese American Association will review the applications and determine the final list of awardees. The awards will be presented in a ceremony to be held during the KCCAA Chinese New Year Gala on January 31st, 2015 at JCCC Yardley Hall.
The Kansas City Chinese Association is grateful to Waddell & Reed Financials and Ivy Funds for generously providing funding for this award.
