High School Volunteers of the Year

MiGen Leads invites all high school students to participate in the annual Volunteer of the Year awards. Students are nominated by their local Right to Life of Michigan affiliates after turning in an application and list of prolife volunteer work and activism. Three students from across Michigan will win the title of Volunteer of the Year by Right to Life of Michigan. For more information, contact your local Right to Life of Michigan affiliate, or State Contest Coordinator Jazlyn Bailey at (616) 532-2300 or jbailey@rtl.org.

The Award

The Right to Life of Michigan Educational Fund will award $200 along with a certification of achievement to three outstanding prolife high school students in Michigan.


This award encourages youth of all grade levels to actively volunteer with local RTL affiliates and participate in the state student and young adult program MiGen Leads.


Any Michigan student who is a high school freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior for the Fall and Winter/Spring semesters of the 2023/2024 school year.


Criteria include the student’s application and a list of his/her participation in Right to Life of Michigan and affiliate prolife activities. Applications, involvement, and leadership will be judged by each local Right to Life of Michigan affiliate, and one student from each affiliate will be nominated to a state committee for consideration. An interview with the winning students will appear in the Right to Life of Michigan news and website.


All activities and volunteer work listed must be with the local affiliate and/or the state organization (Right to Life of Michigan/MiGen Leads).
