About the Congressional Award

The Congressional Award is a national, non-competitive program for all youth ages 13 ½ to 23 who are willing to accept the challenge of setting personal goals to better themselves and their communities. The Congressional Award provides opportunities for young people to unleash their potential by achieving personal goals focused on volunteerism, character development and fitness.  Are you ready to accept the challenge?
