The Kohl's Department Stores' (NYSE: KSS) Kohl's Cares(r) Scholarship Program recognized more than 2,300 young volunteers nationwide who have made a positive impact in their communities through volunteerism. Two hundred fifty-eight youth from California will each receive a $50 gift card and recognition certificate from Kohl's to honor their community service efforts. In 2013, Kohl's celebrates its 13th year of rewarding remarkable young volunteers. Winners qualify for the chance to receive a $1,000 regional scholarship for higher education, which Kohl's will award in July.

Of the nearly 200 regional winners, 10 national winners will each receive a total of $10,000 in scholarships, and Kohl's will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner's behalf. In total this year, Kohl's will recognize more than 2,300 young volunteers with more than $400,000 in scholarships and prizes.
