YOUTH OF THE YEAR
Youth of the Year recognition is the highest honor a Club member can achieve. Youth of the Year celebrates youth who have demonstrated exceptional character and accomplishments. These deserving young people are recognized for service to their Club and community, academic performance and contributions to their family. Youth of the Year honorees are shining examples and living proof that great futures start at Boys & Girls Clubs.
In February, the Boys & Girls Club of Southwest Washington holds our local Youth of the Year Event. The winner of this event will go onto the state competition. Three youth have been nominated and are now preparing speeches, essays and practicing their interviewing skills. Six judges from our local community will individually interview each candidate and select a winner.
