10/01/2010: "Apply For Soroptimists Award"

Young women between the ages of 14 and 17 who are helping to make our community and world a better place are encouraged to apply for the Violet Richardson Award, which is presented each year by the Soroptimists of Friday Harbor. This cash award is given to a young woman who has demonstrated initiative in both identifying a problem and in trying to solve it through her volunteer activities.

Volunteer work can include, but is not limited to, projects that address social problems such as homelessness, violence, drug abuse, unemployment, illiteracy, discrimination, AIDS, and environmental pollution. Activities that benefit women and girls are especially valued.

The award is an opportunity to honor a girl who might not otherwise receive recognition. She may not be the best student, the best athlete, or the most popular girl in school, but she is caring, compassionate, creative, and most of all committed to making the world a better place.

Application forms (both electronic and hard copies) which include information about the award are available from Joyce Sobel, (378-5246 or or counselors at Friday Harbor High School, Griffin Bay School, and Spring Street International School.

Applications are due no later than 5 p.m., Saturday, December 1, 2010.
