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.

Join us in congratulating our 2017 winners.
