Thirty-five students at Burnsville High School have qualified for national recognition based on their hours of volunteer service.
Students were given the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA), which encourages citizens to live a life of service.
Hours are measured over a 12-month period and awards are designated based on cumulative hours. The awards are offered in multiple levels and are designed to recognize each milestone of service achievement. Levels include bronze, silver, gold and the highest honor, the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for those who contribute more than 4,000 hours of service in their lifetime.

“The award is based on the number of hours that students volunteered from May 1, 2014 through April 30, 2015,” according to Bri Ostoff, youth service coordinator for Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Community Education. “These students have volunteered over 5,000 hours combined in service to their community.”
