  • Do you see challenges instead of obstacles? Hope instead of despair?Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 8.20.40 PM

If you are a young woman who believes in the power of volunteer action, then you may be eligible to win a Soroptimist Violet Richardson Award. This award recognizes young women who make the community and world a better place through volunteer efforts such as: fighting drugs, crime and violence; cleaning up the environment; and working to end discrimination and poverty. Volunteer actions that benefit women or girls are of particular interest.

Soroptimist is an organization of women whose members volunteer in their communities, often working
on the same problems that you do. Although we realize that volunteering is its own reward, we also
know it feels good to be recognized for your actions. And that’s why we sponsor this award.

Please submit your Violet Richardson Application by December 1, 2013 to the address listed on the application.

If you’ve got any questions, contact our awards chair and she’ll be happy to help you.
