Since 2003, the Spirit of Service awards has enabled the Corporation to recognize exceptional organizations and program participants from each of the Corporation's three programs: Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve. Prior to 2003, AmeriCorps recognized its outstanding members annually through the All-AmeriCorps Awards, which were initiated in 1999 and presented by President Clinton as part of the 5th anniversary celebration of the program. Senior Corps had recognized its outstanding projects and volunteers at its own national conference, and Learn and Serve America recognized exemplary programs and participants through its Leaders School selection and the President's Student Service Awards. Currently, the Corporation is soliciting comments concerning the Spirit of Service Award nomination guidelines for the Corporate Award. This award is for people, companies, or organizations, who have a relationship with a grantee funded by the Corporation through Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and/or Learn and Serve America and are nominated by a Corporation-sponsored grantee program.
