The Kohlís Department Stores Kohlís Cares Scholarship Program will award nearly $400,000 in scholarships and prizes this year to more than 2,300 young volunteers who have made a positive impact in their communities.
Nominations for kids ages 6 to 18 will be accepted through March 14, 2014, online at kohlskids.com. Kohlís is encouraging parents, teachers, neighbors and friends to nominate outstanding youth, in celebration of their time, energy and passion to helping others.

Ten national winners will be awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships for higher education, and Kohlís will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winnerís behalf.
