Service Above Self





The Service Above Self program was established in 1995 by the Rowan Rotary Club and Rowan County United Way to recognize young people in our county for their volunteer services to others. Each year, nominations are received from parents, school teachers and counselors, family members, volunteer organizations, and others recommending youth volunteers for recognition. An independent panel of judges reviews the nominations.



Winners and finalists are announced and honored at an annual awards ceremony. Three individuals and three organizations are recognized in each of three divisions: elementary school level, middle school level, and high school level. Student winners in each division receive a medal and a car insurance quotes savings bond: All nominees receive a framed certificate for their service. As many as 150 different individuals and groups are recognized each year for their outstanding volunteer services.
