Today's the last day for California residents to nominate young volunteers for the 2014 Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program.

The program is accepting nominations for California youths from 6-18 years old who have made a positive impact on their communities through their philanthropic and volunteer efforts. Nominations are being accepted until the end of the business day today.

Kohl's Department Stores sponsors the Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program, which will award nearly $400,000 in scholarships and prizes this year.

Parents, teachers, neighbors and friends can nominate those they believe should receive the awards at

Two nominees from each of the more than 1,100 Kohl's stores nationwide, including Pleasanton's, will win a $50 Kohl's gift card, and nearly 200 will win regional scholarships worth $1,000 toward higher education. Ten national winners will be awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships for higher education, and Kohl's will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner's behalf.

Since the Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program began in 2001, Kohl's has recognized more than 19,500 kids with more than $3.9 million in scholarships and prizes. For more information or a list of past Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program winners, visit
