DescriptionThe Foundation’s Yoshiyama Award for Exemplary Service to the Community honors 10 high school seniors from around the United States based upon their community service activities. The award selects students based upon service and the opportunity for longer-term social change rather than on academic achievement or extracurricular activities. Grade point averages, SAT scores and school club memberships are also not used as selection criteria. To be eligible, students must be graduating seniors; have activities that impacted a socially, economically, or culturally isolated area; be nominated by someone familiar with their service; have activities that create a longer-term, sustainable social change; and whose service has surpassed what is ordinarily expected of a socially responsible citizen. In addition, nominees must also have demonstrated self-motivation, leadership, creativity, dedication, and commitment in pursuing their service and made a conscious effort to involved and inspire others to community service. Complete program information including an online nomination form is available on the Web site.
