PERRY COUNTY – The Kohl’s Department Stores Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program will award more than $425,000 in scholarships and prizes this year.
Ranging from $50 Kohl’s gift cards to $10,000 scholarships, more than 2,300 young volunteers who have made a positive impact on their communities will be selected. Nominations for kids ages 6 to 18 years old will be accepted until March 15 at kohlskids.com.
Nominators must be 21 years or older. Two nominees from each of the more than 1,100 Kohl’s stores nationwide will win $50 Kohl’s gift cards, and more than 200 will win regional scholarships worth $1,000 toward post-secondary education.
Ten national winners will be awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships for post-secondary education, and Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner’s behalf.
In 2012, there were 75 store winners from Indiana who each received $50 Kohl’s gift card and four regional winners from Indiana who each received a $1,000 scholarship for higher education.
