The Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards is seeking nominations of Jewish teens who are actively engaged in social action. Up to 15 teens from across the country will be selected to receive $36,000 each for their leadership in projects that embody the value of tikkun olam, or “repairing the world.”
Since 2007, this annual program of the Helen Diller Family Foundation has recognized 40 Jewish teens with nearly $1.5 million to further their projects and education.
Community members can nominate young leaders now for the 2014 Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards online at www.dillerteenawards.org. All Jewish teen volunteers between 13 and 19 years old at the time of nomination are eligible. For questions, contact email@example.com or call 415.512.6432.
The nomination deadline is Sunday, January 19, 2014.
