The 10 Who Make A Difference Award recognizes 10 outstanding individuals or groups within Southeastern Minnesota and Northern Iowa who have made an impact in their community through volunteering. Each year KTTC Television and the United Way of Olmsted County ask non-profit organizations and the public to nominate an individual or a group who have made a difference in their community. A judging panel of community members reviewed the nominations and selected 10 individuals and/or groups to receive this award. The 10 Who Make a Difference are honored at an award ceremony in Rochester during Rochesterfest.
Emerging Leaders In Giving (ELIG) is made up of young professionals dedicated to volunteerism. Their vision is to build a future where young professionals are deeply engaged in contributing to the betterment of the community. Their mission is uniting young professionals to promote volunteerism, community awareness and relationship-building.
United Way of Olmsted County partners with Mayo High School to recognize and reward students for their volunteer efforts in the community. Students who volunteer 145 hours or more of service in a year can earn a school varsity letter, the same as those earned by athletes and musicians.
