Nominations are open for the 6th annual Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards

Do you know any Jewish teens dedicated to making the world a better place? If so, nominate them to win a $36,000 award that will change their lives and spotlight their incredible work!

Over the past five years, the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards have celebrated 25 community service leaders from across California for their outstanding volunteer leadership on causes including education, the environment, supporting and engaging their peers and helping refugees of genocide.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: Watch past recipients talk about what the Award has meant to them.  Nominations are now open for the 2012 Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards. We are calling on you to help us celebrate the power of teens to change the world. Nominations may be submitted through January 6, 2012.

AWARD ELIGIBILITY: The award is open to Jewish teens who are residents of California and are ages 13-19 at the time of nomination. Teens’ projects can help either the Jewish community or the general community, so long as they have not been remunerated for their services. Teens may be nominated by any community member who knows the value of their project—EXCEPT family members—or may also nominate themselves.For more information visit our website or contact the Project Coordinator for the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards, Rachel Bloom, at (415) 512-6437 or
