The Silver Cord Award - Overview
The Silver Cord Award is a distinguished volunteer service award available to high school students who earn a minimum of 120 hours of community service/volunteering starting with the beginning of their sophomore year and continuing through their junior and senior years of school.
On senior awards night each May, recipients of the honor receive a silver cord to wear with their robes during graduation in recognition of their achievement.
Silver Cord hours must be for providing a service or meeting a clear need for an agency, church, school, park, charity program or fundraiser, or community event.
The service should be “above and beyond” one’s usual scope of involvement.
Silver Cord forms are available in .pdf format and require Adobe Reader.
