This year the Yale Club of NV created the Yale Day of Service NV Award for high school students that exemplified the spirit of the Yale Day of Service. Students were asked to submit community service projects that made a positive impact to their local community. We received dozens of applications and we are excited to announce the two finalist projects. We had a tie vote so we’re giving the award to both projects. Awards will be given on Yale Day of Service at the site location for each project.
