Kohl's Department Stores, which has a store in New Milford, will award nearly $400,000 in scholarships and prizes this year to more than 2,300 young volunteers who have made a positive impact in their communities.

Nominations for kids ages 6 to 18 will be accepted through Friday, March 14 at www.kohlskids.com.

Two nominees from each of the more than 1,100 Kohl's stores nationwide will win a $50 Kohl's gift card, and nearly 200 will win regional scholarships worth $1,000 toward higher education.

Ten national winners will be awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships for higher education, and Kohl's will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner's behalf.
