The Kohl's Department Stores' (NYSE: KSS) Kohl's Cares(r) Scholarship Program recognized more than 2,300 young volunteers nationwide who have made a positive impact in their communities through volunteerism. Two hundred fifty-eight youth from California will each receive a $50 gift card and recognition certificate from Kohl's to honor their community service efforts.

Winners qualify for the chance to receive a $1,000 regional scholarship for higher education, which Kohl's will award in July.
