Kohl's of Pleasanton part of U.S. scholarship program

2 nominees from local store to participate

Kohl's Department Store in Pleasanton, along with other Kohl's stores and the Kohl's 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 youths ages of 6-18 will be accepted through March 14 at kohlskids.com.

Kohl's encourages parents, teachers, neighbors and friends to nominate outstanding youth in celebration of their time, energy and passion for helping others.

Two nominees from each of the more than 1,100 Kohl's stores nationwide 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 program began in 2001, Kohl's has recognized more than 19,500 kids with more than $3.9 million in scholarships and prizes.

Kohl's Cares is the philanthropic platform of Kohl's Department Stores whose mission is to support the health and education of children nationwide, women's health, the fight against breast cancer and environmental initiatives.

Since 2000, Kohl's has raised more than $231 million for child health and education initiatives through the Kohl's Cares merchandise program and donated more than 2.2 million hours of volunteer time through the Associates in Action volunteer program.
