I just wanted to send this to you all if you are interested in forwarding to families in 245. This is a wonderful award that does not get many submissions each year so the odds of receiving the award are really
Deadline for submission is Dec 1st 2014. Eligible for girls ages 14-17yrs old. The Violet Richardson award is $500 for the winner and $500 for the charity of choice.
Named after the president of the first Soroptimist club, the Soroptimist Violet Richardson Award honors girls who are making a difference through volunteer service. Each year, Soroptimist clubs honor girls who donate their time and energy
to causes that make the community and world a better place—such as working to end discrimination and poverty, assisting women and children who are victims of domestic violence, or mentoring young girls. The program begins on the Soroptimist club level and
may also be eligible for a region level award.
