We are pleased to invite your school to participate in our annual Make a Difference Award. Here at Associates & Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, we feel very passionate about volunteerism and going above and beyond within the community. The Make a Difference Award seeks to recognize students who have been involved in extraordinary volunteerism or community projects that have made a difference in the lives of others.
Bruce and Cheryl Scheiner have offered this award to public school students in Southwest Florida forover 15
years, and they are eager to have your school participate. This contest involves the student completing an application and writing a 300-word essay describing their experiences with helping others in their communities. The focus of the essay should be on self-directed volunteerism that exceeds the service requirements mandated or sponsored by the school.
Essays and applications are reviewed by our firm and winners are designat ed at the end of the school year. Awards will be presented at the school’s year-end award ceremony. Student’s that win will be awarded $150 and will be invited to an award luncheon for winners selected from all schools involved. One grand prize winner will be selected during the award luncheon and will be awarded $1000 for their exceptional volunteerism and writing ability. If you would like for your students to have a chance to win an award for their volunteer efforts, please contact Karen Mayo at
