Kohl’s Department Stores announced the 10 national winners of the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program. These exceptional youth, ranging in age from six to 18, are the recipients of a total of $10,000 in scholarships each for higher education. In addition to the scholarships, Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization of each winner’s choice.
“Kohl’s is thrilled to recognize the ten national winners of the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program and we applaud them for the time, energy and passion they have devoted to helping others and making a difference,” said Bevin Bailis, Kohl’s senior vice president, communications and public relations.
“Whether it is collecting and distributing more than 200,000 books to children or raising money to purchase AEDs to be placed at local parks and playgrounds, these children are doing inspiring work in their communities every day.”
Winners are chosen based on initiative, leadership, generosity and project benefits and outcome. This year’s winners were selected from more than 37,000 youth nominees nationwide for their volunteer efforts.
