Kohl’s Department Stores will be accepting nominations of outstanding young volunteers for the 2014 Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program from Jan. 31 through March 14.
Nominations for children ages 6 to 18 may be made online at kohlskids.com. Those making nominations must be 21 or older.
Through the program, Kohl’s will award more than 2,300 young volunteers nearly $400,000 in scholarships and prizes to reward children who have made a positive impact on the community.
Two nominees from each of more than 1,100 Kohl’s stores nationwide will win a $50 Kohl’s gift card. Nearly 200 of the store winners will win regional scholarships worth $1,000 toward higher education.
Ten national winners will be awarded $10,000 in scholarships for higher education, and Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a non-profit organization on each national winner’s behalf.
The Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program is part of Kohl’s Cares, the company’s philanthropic program focused on improving the lives of children. Since the program began in 2001, Kohl’s has recognized more than 19,500 youth with more than $3.9 million in scholarships and prizes.
