The mayors and commissioners of Adams County are asking for nominations for the Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards (ACMCYA). This award focuses on teenagers who have triumphed over great odds and serve as inspirations and role models for their peers.
Each year, this program recognizes young people in grades 6-12 who have overcome personal adversity to create a positive change in their own lives or for those around them. If this sounds like a person who may not be in a school setting but is under the age of 20, those nominations will also be accepted.
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 community, please help us identify them. Contact Abby Martinez at the City of Brighton Office of Youth Services at 303-655-2186 or firstname.lastname@example.org for a nomination form or for questions about the program.
The deadline to submit your nomination is January 31, 2020.
