Nomination forms available for Youth Achievement Awards

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 Nomination forms are due by 5 pm, Friday, Feb. 9, 2024. Honorees will be sent a certificate, commemorative pin, and video message from the Clark County Youth Commission by late May.
