Colleyville Woman’s Club Annual Youth Volunteer Service Awards,CWC Spirit of Youth Grants & Circle of Hope ScholarshipsFor
Deadline to Apply for CWC Youth Programs and Scholarships is Feb. 21, 2020
Colleyville Woman’s Club (CWC) seeks to honor young people for their community volunteer
efforts. As a nonprofit service organization, CWC recognizes that it is today’s youth who must
become tomorrow’s volunteers and that through volunteer service, one individual can make a
difference. This spring will mark the 25th year that the club has recognized area youth for their
hands-on volunteer efforts.
Anyone can nominate a child. Nominees between the ages of 5 to 19 may attend any school—
public, private or homeschooled—and must EITHER reside or attend a school in Bedford,
Colleyville, Euless, Grapevine, Haltom City, Hurst, Keller, North Richland Hills, Richland Hills,
Southlake or Watauga OR attend BISD, CISD, GCISD, HEB ISD or KISD. Volunteer service is not
limited to those areas, however. The awards recognize voluntary, not paid, service. Fundraising
activities and lobbying efforts, regardless of good intent, are excluded from consideration. Awards
are judged in four age groups and each award may recognize several nominees.
In addition to its Youth Volunteer Service Awards program, Colleyville Woman’s Club offers two
additional programs for graduating seniors. CWC’s Spirit of Youth Volunteer Grants program
offers grants to area seniors based upon a 4-year high school history of volunteer service. In
addition, CWC’s Circle of Hope and Dick Dennison Memorial scholarships are need-based
scholarships that benefit seniors at five specific high schools. Recipients in all three programs will be honored at the organization’s Caring With Commitment Celebration in May.
Information for all three programs, including nomination and application forms, is available on the Colleyville Woman’s Club website at www.c–w-c.org.
