Nominations due February 13 for 2013 York County
Outstanding Youth Award Scholarships
Citizens are invited to help celebrate some of the good news about York County's high school aged youth by nominating a deserving student for one of the county's $500 Outstanding Youth Award Scholarships sponsored each year by the Board of Supervisors and the Youth Commission. Nominations in the categories of Compassion, Courage, Community Service and Overall Achievement are due at the Parks and Recreation Office by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 13, 2013
Anyone - parents, grandparents, teachers, counselors, coaches, club sponsors, neighbors, employers, youth ministers, scout leaders and friends - can nominate a deserving high school student for one of these awards. Nominees must be residents of York County and currently enrolled in grades 9 – 12. Students attending public, private or home school are all eligible. A Selection Committee will review the nominations and choose an award recipient for each category. The four award recipients will each receive one of the educational scholarships and be formally recognized with their families and nominators at a reception in their honor and at a Board of Supervisors meeting in May 2013. 
The Board of Supervisors will send a letter and signed certificate to all nominees congratulating them on their nomination and informing them of their nominator. You can show someone that you care and that his/her character and accomplishments are appreciated by taking a little time to nominate them for one of these scholarship awards. 
Nomination forms and complete program details are best available by downloading them from the York County Youth Commission's Web site at Hard copies of the nomination forms are also available at the Yorktown and Tabb Libraries, Williamsburg-James City County Libraries, and the Parks and Recreation Office at 100 County Drive (23690).
Please call Parks and Recreation at 890-3500 if you have any questions regarding this program.
