Connecting with Local Youth


To support local youth, Community Thread awards a scholarship annually to a graduating Stillwater Area High School senior who shows a commitment to his or her community through volunteering. The student must exemplify a strong commitment to local, community volunteerism and demonstrate how his or her volunteerism has made an impact on his or her personal life and community. Application details are available through the high school’s scholarship packet.

Cribbage in the Schools

Community Thread coordinates intergenerational programming, including a program utilizing older adult volunteers who play cribbage with students to help them strengthen their math skills. This is a volunteer opportunity that takes place in several elementary schools in the Stillwater Area School District.

Community Involvement Awards

Since 1975 Community Thread and the Washington County Board of Commissioners have recognized outstanding volunteer service through the Community Involvement Awards. These awards shine a spotlight on volunteerism and honor the great work volunteers do throughout Washington County. Volunteers are recognized in six categories: youth, group/family, exemplary employer, outstanding, lifetime, and legacy.
