Recognition is a powerful way to help young people feel valued and connected to their community
VANCOUVER – The Clark County Youth Commission is seeking nominations to recognize 300 local youth that demonstrate personal growth and community contribution in one of thirteen categories of achievement. Youth will be recognized in categories such as arts, career development, citizenship, courage, diversifier, education, empathy, environmental stewardship, family life, inspiration, leadership, personal achievement, and sportsmanship.
Recognition is a powerful way to help young people feel valued and connected to their community. Youth development research demonstrates that having opportunities for positive involvement in the community, and being recognized for that involvement, helps young people be healthy, happy, and successful.
Nomination forms are available online at https://www.clark.wa.gov/community-services/youth-achievement. Nomination forms are due by 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 9, 2024. Honorees will be sent a certificate, commemorative pin, and video message from the Clark County Youth Commission by late May.
The Clark County Youth Commission is a youth advisory board for the Clark County Council and is comprised of 30 diverse youth, ages 11-19, representing different areas of the county.
For more information about the Clark County Youth Achievement Awards or the Clark County Youth Commission, please contact Elizabeth Houston-Hill, program coordinator, at (564) 397-5133 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
