The “Green Cord” Community Service Award Program is an initiative designed to help high school students gain a sense of community service, pride, and ownership. The program is a way to encourage 9-12 grade students to contribute at least 100 hours of approved community service per school year. Those students meeting these requirements will be recognized as Green Cord award recipients in each high school year they complete 100 or more hours.

  • Students can be recognized all four years. 
  • Students meeting and/or exceeding requirements for community service (100 hours/year) will be awarded a Green Cord certificate or patch for each year of participation.
  • During the senior year, graduates will have the option to purchase a “Green Cord” for each year of achievement (100 hours/year) to wear during the high school graduation ceremony.
  • Dates of Service - May 1st, 2017 - April 13th, 2018
  • Community service hours must have a signature of a person (non-family member) supervising  the event/service. 

 To be counted toward the annual “Green Cord” award, hours must be turned in by April 13 of each academic year. Hours can be earned and submitted between May 1st, 2017 – April 13, 2018.
