The Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards (SOCA)

The 'Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards' is an annual nationwide search to identify and recognize school students who have made a positive difference in their communities through voluntary community service.

The programme is an extension of the ‘Prudential Spirit of Community Awards’, the largest youth recognition programme in the United States, which Prudential Financial, Inc. (PFI) has been conducting for the last 19 years to identify the country's top youth volunteers.

The annual recognition events for these winners are held in Washington, D.C. and include gala award ceremonies at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and the US Chamber of Commerce, tour of capitol’s historic monuments and landmarks, Congressional visits on Capitol Hills, a festive dinner cruise on Potomac river and many other exciting events. It offers an opportunity to the honourees from participating countries to share their experiences and ideas with one another.

This award programme was introduced in India in 2010 and over the last 4 years, it has reached out to approximately 115,000 students across the country. Over 13,000 children have participated in this initiative by sending in their applications and of them, more than 385 students have been recognized for their remarkable community service efforts. This year, we aim to reach out to over 300 schools across 8 cities including Delhi, Kolkata, Patna, Chandigarh, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Jaipur. The winners will receive medallions, cash prizes and a return trip to Washington, D.C. in May, 2015. The programme, over the last 4 years, has also attracted noted personalities like Dr. Sonal Mansingh, Ms. Shabana Azmi, Ms. Sharmila Tagore, and Ms. Dia Mirza.
