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
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 5 pm, Friday, Jan. 13, 2023. Honorees will be sent a certificate, lapel pin, and video message in late April.
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, please contact Elizabeth Hill, program coordinator, at 564.397.5133 or email@example.com.
