The Helen Diller Family Foundation is accepting nominations and applications for its 2021 Tikkun Olam Awards.
The award celebrates Jewish teens who have demonstrated impressive leadership and are actively engaged in community service projects that embody the value of tikkun olam ("repairing the world"). Through the program, up to fifteen teens from across the United States are acknowledged annually for their visionary actions with an award of $36,000 to be used to further their philanthropic work or education.
The award is open to Jewish teens who are residents of the United States and are between the ages of 13 and 19 at the time of application. Applicants' projects should help either the Jewish community or the general community, so long as teens have not been compensated for their service.
Nominations are due on December 18 and applications are due January 8, 2021. Teens do not have to be nominated to apply; however, those who have been nominated must also apply.
