The San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory in California is one of five finalists for the Prudential Leadership Awards for Exceptional Nonprofit Boards, a competition that awards $45,000 to boards that exemplify “exceptional governance and demonstrate their ability to drive positive change in the areas of structure, fundraising, or governance.” For the competition, established via a partnership between the nonprofit leadership organization BoardSource and Prudential and the Prudential Foundation, the finalists were chosen from nearly 50 applicants who submitted video applications beginning in April. In addition to the SDYS, the other finalists are Clarifi (Pennsylvania), Jewish Family and Career Services of Atlanta, OPAL Community Land Trust (Washington), and United Through Reading (California). The grand prize winner, to be announced on September 15, 2012, will receive $25,000, with the remainder being divided among the other finalists.
