As students in elementary, middle and high school, Yash, Katie, and Zachary are changing lives for the better at home and abroad. Last year, they were among the six Hasbro Community Action Heroes – young people who are committed to community service.

Do you know a young person who would make a good candidate for this year’s Hasbro Community Action Hero Award?

The award recognizes outstanding young volunteers who show that you are never too young to make a difference. Hasbro Children's Fund and generationOn will celebrate six young people ages 5 to 18 for their extraordinary community service and volunteer activities at a special event in New York and present each awardee with a $1,000 scholarship.
