The Congressional Award is an award for young Americans, established by the United States Congress in 1979 to “recognize initiative, service and achievement in young people.” It is non-partisan, voluntary, and non-competitive program open to all 13 1/2 to 23-year-olds. You must accomplish your goals by your 24th birthday.
The Congressional Award Program is about challenge. The Award offers young people the opportunity to set a personal goal and achieve it. Along the way, you will learn about yourself and about qualities like responsibility, trust and the ability to plan and organize. There are six levels of Award — Bronze, Silver, and Gold Certificates and Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals. Each level is cumulative — this means time spent on one award is carried with you to the next level.
The areas of the congressional award are Voluntary service, personal development, physical education and expedition/exploration. We will help our students to achieve their personal goals by offering them opportunities, monitoring their progress and guiding them along their self-journey. This is a great opportunity for students to really learn about themselves and the world they live in. Some students based on their performance an initiative in the various levels of Congressional award may receive scholarships for future educational opportunities.
