Columbus Day Tournament Finalists - Playing 5 games in 2 days due to Saturday's rain, Hanks Yanks advanced to the Boys Of Summer Columbus Day Tournament Finals and played baseball until after 9pm on Columbus day - coming up a run short of winning the Championship. Congrats to all the players and coaches on making the finals and playing so well during the tournament.

The Congressional Award


Hank’s Yanks players have the opportunity of earning a prestige community services award “The Congressional Award”, based on their community service hours earned.

This  program can be essential for school acknowledgment, honor society and/or a college resume / application.

Each individual will need to register for the program and track all hours earned by visiting http://www.congressionalaward.org/

When registering you may list Michelle Wilson as the advisor, so that verification of hours is directed to herself.

Michelle Wilson   516-805-4886  Michbb10@gmail.com

Below is some information regarding the award opportunity.

The Congressional Award is an award for young Americans, established by the United States Congress in 1979 to "recognize initiative, service and achievement in young people." It is non-partisan, voluntary, and non-competitive program open to all 13 1/2 to 23-year-olds.

The Congressional Award recognizes the setting and meeting of goals in four program areas: Voluntary public service, personal development, physical fitness, and expedition/exploration. Based on time commitments to each of the areas, participants earn Bronze, Silver, or Gold Congressional Award Certificates; and Bronze, Silver, or Gold Congressional Award Medals.

After a youth has registered for the program, either online or via mail, they receive a record book to record their progress in the program’s four key program areas: Voluntary Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration.

When a youth has achieved his or her goals in each Program Area, and met the necessary requirements for each, he or she then submits the completed record book to the National Office where it is reviewed. The youth will then be notified either that they have been approved, or that they need to provide additional information. The National Office works with each youth individually.
