Do you know a student whose contributions usually do not make the headlines, but should? Within the Snohomish County community, hundreds of young citizens are achieving personal success beyond academics and sports. The Youth Challenge Awards Committee needs your help to give these young people the credit they deserve.
Know of a local 7th- through 12th-grade student who deserves to be recognized? Nominate him or her for a Snohomish County Youth Challenge Award. Categories include community service, courage, creativity, environmental service, inspiration, leadership or group award.
You can download a nomination brochure or complete the online nomination form at www.youthchallengeawards.com. Nomination deadline is Thursday, March 31. The Youth Challenge Awards are presented by the Lynnwood Rotary Club. For more information, call Mike Neumeister at 425-774-3022.
