Youthful quest for congressional gold

Americans aged 14 to 23 are eligible to earn the prestigious Congressional Award, a national recognition of young people's achievements. Sixty other nations have similar awards.

*Participants must set and accomplish goals in four program areas: voluntary public service; physical fitness; personal development, and expeditions.

*Gold, silver, and bronze medals are based on age and time commitment (14 year olds: 210 hours for a bronze). In June, gold medals will be presented in Washington, D.C., by members of Congress.
