Kohl's Cares offering scholarships for youth volunteers

The Kohl’s Department Stores Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program will award nearly $400,000 in scholarships and prizes this year to more than 2,300 young volunteers who have made a positive impact in their communities.

Nominations for kids ages 6 to 18 will be accepted Jan. 31 through March 14 at kohlskids.com. Kohl’s is encouraging parents, teachers, neighbors and friends to nominate outstanding youth, in celebration of their time, energy and passion to helping others.

Two nominees from each of the more than 1,100 Kohl’s stores nationwide will win a $50 Kohl’s gift card, and nearly 200 will win regional scholarships worth $1,000 toward higher education. Ten national winners will be awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships for higher education, and Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner’s behalf.

Since the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program began in 2001, Kohl’s has recognized more than 19,500 kids with more than $3.9 million in scholarships and prizes. For more information or a list of past Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program winners, visit kohlskids.com.
