Kohl's Cares scholarship program accepting nominations

Now through March 14, the Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program will accept nominations for kids ages 6-18 who have made a positive impact in their communities.

The program will award nearly $400,000 in scholarships and prizes this year to more than 2,300 young volunteers.

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. To nominate a young person in the community and for more information, visit kohlskids.com.

Kohl's Cares, the philanthropic platform of Kohl's Department Stores, is committed to giving back to the communities it serves by supporting kids' health and education nationwide, women's health and the fight against breast cancer and environmental initiatives. Since 2000, Kohl's has raised more than $231 million for kids health and education initiatives through the Kohl's Cares cause merchandise program, recognized more than 19,500 outstanding kids through the Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program and donated more than 2.2 million hours of volunteer time through the Associates in Action volunteer program.
