Congratulations to Prarthana for winning the NextUp Award, March 12, 2019.
Congratulations to Prarthana for winning the NextUp Blood Science Foundation service award in 13-15 Age category, on March 12, 2019! For this award, Prarthana has received $2500 in scholarship.
Blood Science Foundation, the fundraising and philanthropic arm of Vitalant(formerly LifeSource), is preparing to honor some of Chicagoland’s outstanding youth by hosting the organization’s first edition of The NextUp Awards.
Launched this winter by Blood Science Foundation, the fundraising and philanthropic arm of Vitalant, the NextUp Awards provides scholarships to deserving young people across the area who have shown a transformative commitment to their communities – through fundraising, the development of charitable programs, volunteering, leadership and philanthropy.
School districts, organizations and students themselves had the opportunity to nominate young people for the awards program. Nominees were required to live within the Vitalant service area in Chicagoland and had to have completed a charitable or philanthropic activity in the past 18 months that could be replicated in other cities.
A committee chosen by Blood Science Foundation selected three finalists from each of the age categories. One winner in each category received a $2,500 scholarship.
