Community MVP Program

KCP&L recognizes and rewards standout community student volunteers.


The KCP&L Community MVP program spotlights teens in the Greater Kansas City KCP&L service area who dedicate their time to improving our communities. Teens volunteering to make a positive difference in the lives around them may nominate themselves. Parents, neighbors, school staff or anyone familiar with the student's work may also submit a nomination on their behalf.

KCP&L selects 10 finalists from all the nominations submitted. Once finalists are chosen, the public will vote for one finalist to receive a $5,000 scholarship to a 529 College Savings Plan. The other nine finalists will each receive a $1,000 scholarship to a 529 College Savings Plan. In addition, all finalists will receive a VIP game-day experience, catching a Kansas City Chiefs game at Arrowhead.

Dependents of KCP&L customers who live in the KCP&L service territory are eligible to enter. To submit a nomination, explain in 250 words or less why the nominee should be selected. Please include a high-resolution digital head shot of the nominee along with the nominee’s full contact information below. For additional nomination criteria and eligibility requirements see the official program rules.
