Community Volunteer Award
The Community Volunteer Award is awarded annually to outstanding volunteers in our community. Any new, active, or sustaining member of the Junior League of Topeka may submit a candidate.
Award Winners are given a donation to their charity of choice on behalf of the Junior League of Topeka. These individuals have given selflessly of their time, hard work, and acts of kindness to our community and deserve to be recognized.
