Loudoun Interfaith BRIDGES Community Youth Award

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 1, 2009

Loudoun Interfaith BRIDGES is proud to announce that it is accepting applications for the Loudoun Interfaith BRIDGES Community Youth Award. This is the first year that student residents of Loudoun County, grades 9-12, are urged to apply for one of two grants awarded on the basis of their leadership in the area of interfaith activities. One grant of $1000 and another of $500 will be presented at the Interfaith Day of Thanks on Sunday, November 8, 2009 at the Ida Lee Recreation Center in Leesburg Virginia.

The awards will be based on completion and submission of an application which describes the student’s involvement in a community service activity that fosters interfaith or multicultural understanding. Applications must include letters of recommendation and other documentation which supports their involvement.

Applications can be obtained from the BRIDGES website, loudouninterfaithbridges.org. They must be submitted by October 25 after which they will be reviewed by a selection committee of BRIDGES members. Loudoun County students are encouraged to celebrate the cultural and religious diversity in our county and be recognized accordingly. Contact youthaward@loudouninterfaithbridges.org with questions.
