Youth Awards nominations are open!
Do you know an exceptional young person who is working hard to make life better for themselves, their peers, or the community?
Maybe they’ve overcome personal challenges or obstacles… or maybe they’ve made a significant achievement in academics, sports, or music… or maybe they’re doing volunteer work to help make the District a better place to live, work, or play.
Whatever the accomplishment, celebrate it with a Youth Award.
Each year, awards are given in four categories:
Youth Recognition Award
For young people who have made great personal strides, overcome personal or societal barriers, or demonstrated great skill in music, academics, art, or sports.
Youth Community Enhancement Award
For young volunteers who have made positive contributions to the community by providing at least 75 hours of service on a committee, or by working with a local organization or group.
Outstanding Youth-Friendly Business/Supporter of Youth Award
For a person or business that did an exceptional job in hiring or training youth, providing opportunities to youth, or providing funding, support, or services to young people.
Outstanding Youth Team Award
Recognizes a group of young people (ages 10 – 24) who have completed a minimum of 50 hours per person of community (or school) service to enhance programs or services in their school or community.
Nominations Deadline is March 13, 2023 @11:59PM PST
