BURROUGHS HIGH SCHOOL NAMED 2017 NATIONAL CIVIC IMPACT AWARD WINNER

BURROUGHS HIGH SCHOOL NAMED 2017 NATIONAL CIVIC IMPACT AWARD WINNER

John Burroughs High School in Southern California has been named the 2016-2017 National Civic Impact Award winner.  The Chapter, which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, has been active in its Los Angeles County community raising awareness about issues like children’s cancer, volunteering for local and state campaigns and promoting the importance of the youth vote.

Burroughs JSA Chapter leadership in their application essay noted that the Chapter is committed to “dissuading the the sort of political apathy that is pervasive among their generation.” As part of its efforts, the Chapter hosted the California Secretary of State at a school-wide assembly and also invited and welcomed several local officials as guest speakers at its weekly JSA club meetings.

“Burroughs JSA is a collective of exceptionally talented and passionate students who have dedicated their efforts to promoting youth involvement in politics and activism in phenomenal ways this year,” the essay noted.

This year alone the Chapter raised more than $2,000 for children with cancer to have summer camp experiences and collected canned food for the local temporary aid center. As the 2016-2017 National Civic Impact Award winner, Burroughs High School will receive a $2,000 grant to continue their civic engagement effort, a $500 grant for their Teacher Advisor and an engraved plaque.
