Kohl’s Cares® Scholarship Program Accepting Nominations For Young Volunteers

The Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) Kohl’s Cares® Scholarship Program will award more than $420,000 in scholarships and prizes, ranging from $50 Kohl’s gift cards to $10,000 scholarships, to more than 2,200 young volunteers who have made a positive impact on their communities. Nominations for kids ages six to 18 will be accepted until March 15 at kohlskids.com. Kohl’s is helping promising youth to further their education at a time when college tuition continues to increase yearly – a challenge to many American families who face high unemployment and stagnant incomes.

“Through the Kohl’s Cares® Scholarship Program, Kohl’s recognizes young volunteers who dedicate their time, energy and passion to helping others and bettering the communities we live in,” said Julie Gardner, Kohl’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “During a time of economic uncertainty and high tuition costs, it’s important to support extraordinary kids by investing in their future. We encourage parents, teachers, neighbors and friends to nominate outstanding young volunteers at kohlskids. com.”

To nominate volunteers ages six to 18 for a Kohl’s Cares scholarship, visit www.kohlskids.com. Nominations are accepted February 1 through March 15, and nominators must be 21 years or older. Two nominees from each of the more than 1,100 Kohl’s stores nationwide will win a $50 Kohl’s gift card, and more than 200 will win regional scholarships worth $1,000 toward postsecondary education. Ten national winners will be awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships for postsecondary education and Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner’s behalf.
