Applications and nominations are now being accepted for the Diller Tikkun Olam Awards, which honor Jewish teens who demonstrate remarkable leadership and en-gagement in projects that embody the values of tikkun olam, “repairing the world.” Up to 15 recipients will be awarded $36,000 each to further their project or for their educa-tion.
Those eligible are teens 13–19 years old who self-identify as Jewish, live in the United States, and are not compensated for their work. Projects may focus on the Jewish or general community.
Teens may apply directly online by submitting an application by Jan. 8, 2021.
Teachers, rabbis, community leaders, or any individual aware of the value of the teen’s leadership may submit a nomination online by Dec. 18, 2020. Nominated teens will then be asked to complete a full application.
