Each year The Cambridge Club celebrates the efforts of Cambridge public school students who are juniors or seniors and who have dedicated themselves to community service, and represent the ideals of community activism and service. We offer cash awards as a way to recognize these students' accomplishments.
Annually, we give a cash award to the students who are selected. Note that this is an award - not a scholarship. This means that our winners are free to use the money any way they choose. It's our way of showing them how much we appreciate their public service activities.
We hope that this award encourages high school students
Ellen G. Moot, (1930 – 2016) grew up in Boston, attended Shady Hill School and Radcliffe College in Cambridge. John R. Moot, (1922 – 2008) adopted the City of Cambridge when he settled here in the early 1950s. Each served on numerous boards and committees, were active politically, and never saw a worthy cause they didn’t embrace. They were always willing to dedicate their time and talents to such causes. The City of Cambridge has benefitted significantly from their accomplishments.
Why does this award mean so much to the members of The Cambridge Club
The Cambridge Club members are personally dedicated to promoting activism and community service and have, since its founding, demonstrated a deep commitment to improving the health and welfare of Cambridge people and institutions by substantial volunteer efforts. We hope that we are providing a model of service and activism that guides young people into a life of service.
This award is one way to encourage young people to assume responsibility for their community.
