The Hasbro Community Action Hero Award recognizes outstanding young volunteers who show that you are never too young to make a difference in your local or global community. Hasbro Children’s Fund and generationOn will celebrate five young people, between the ages of 5 and 18, for their extraordinary community service and volunteer activities in the past 12 months at a special recognition event in New York City.

Each awardee will also receive a $1,000 educational scholarship.

• Be a student in grade K-12 and age 5-18 at time of nomination

Nominations will be accepted through Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 5:00pm EST. Every nomination makes a difference. To recognize the amazing service work performed by youth everywhere, Hasbro will donate a toy or game to Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.) for every nomination received by the February 20, 2013 deadline. K.I.D.S. donates new clothing, shoes, toys, books to kids in need who face poverty, homelessness, domestic abuse, major illness, incarcerated family members, and disaster survival.

generationOn, the global youth service movement of Points of Light, inspires, equips and mobilizes youth to take action through service clubs, schools, youth organizations, campaigns and youth leadership initiatives. It also provides tools and resources to youth, families and educators to help kids change the world and themselves through service. For more, visit http://www.generationOn.org.
