The Mayors and Commissioners of Adams County are asking for nominations for the Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards. Each year, this program recognizes young people in grades 6th-12th, or those who may not be in a school setting but are 20 years of age or younger, who have overcome personal adversity to create a positive change in their own lives or those around them. This award focuses on teenagers who have triumphed over great odds and serve as inspirations and role models for their peers.
This program provides businesses, the community and civic leaders an opportunity to actively demonstrate their support for the young people in all of our communities and recognize them for their accomplishments. Businesses may also help by making a monetary or in-kind donation.
If you know of a student who would be a good candidate to be recognized by the Brighton community, please help us identify them. Nomination forms will be available Wednesday, Nov. 1. You may request a nomination form when they become available by contacting Abby Martinez, City of Brighton Youth Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For questions about the program, please call 303-655-2186.
