Junior League seeking high school award nominees

NEW HAVEN — The Junior League of Greater New Haven is seeking applicants for its annual High School Voluntarism Award.
The award recognizes up to two female high school seniors in Greater New Haven who "exemplify a demonstrated commitment to the community and who plan to attend an accredited college, university or vocational school," organizers said in a statement.
Two awards for $1,500 each are distributed each year through a contribution from Yale University and the Junior League of Greater New Haven, the statement said.
Applicants must be nominated by either a community organization, school official or a member of the JLGNH.
A minimum of a C (2.0) grade point average is required, and the award is not based on financial need.
In addition to a completed application, applicants must submit a written essay and two letters of recommendation, one from their nominator and one from another adult supervisor.
Applications must be received by April 27.
Chosen recipients will be notified in writing by May 7. Applications are available by contacting the JLGNH at 203-562-5076, via e-mail:, ord at
