Community Service Award 2017

The annual FSYF Community Service Contest recognizes U.S. Foreign Service youth who demonstrate outstanding volunteer efforts in service to their community or to their peers.  

The award sponsor, Clements Worldwide, has generously donated the award money for this contest. Clements wants to celebrate our Foreign Service youth who get involved in and give back to their communities, whether domestic or overseas.  FS Youth can be nominated either for a distinct project or for a history of dedicated service.

Deadline for Application: April 17, 2017

Award Details
Two winners will receive generous cash prizes of $2,000 each, made possible by Clements Worldwide Insurance. Both winners will be honored at the Youth Awards Ceremony in July 2017.

Contest Eligibility

All FSYF contests are open to children of U.S. Foreign Affairs agency officials who are eligible for overseas assignment and who report to the Chief of Mission when at post.  Entry is free to FSYF members.  

If you are not a member of FSYF (and do not wish to join at this time) you can still enter the FSYF contests by paying an entry fee of $20 per person, per contest (only one entry can be submitted for each contest).  

The contest is open to FS youth living both domestically and at overseas posts.  The children of FSYF Board Members and staff are not eligible to participate in the Community Service Award.
