Teenage nominees sought for Jewish awards

local@modbee.comDecember 19, 2013 

Now in its eighth year, the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards program recognizes up to 15 young Jewish leaders with $36,000 each for spearheading volunteer service projects that are making a difference locally, nationally or globally.

Recipients can use the grant as they wish.

Teens may be nominated by any community member: teachers, rabbis, civic leaders – anyone who knows the value of their project (except a family member), or may self-nominate.

In addition, the foundation will grant three $360 donations on behalf of randomly selected nominators for the notprofits of their choice.

All Jewish teen volunteers in the United States, 13 to 19 years old at the time of nomination, are eligible.

Complete the online nomination form at www.dillerteenawards.org by Jan. 19.

For more information, email dillert@sfjcf.org or call (415) 512-6432.
