The Brandon Groveland Youth Assistance is seeking nominations for their annual Youth Recognition Night.
Anyone can nominate a youth that they feel has gone above and beyond in helping people and the community or has been a general role model for others.
Youths that are nominated must be school age in the Brandon school district, and there are four categories for which they may qualify. They may have given exceptional service to others, it may be an achievement by an individual who has overcome personal challenges and/or set an example for others, heroism or outstanding humanitarian act, or exceptional service by an individual within a club or organization.
“Efforts to better our community and being nice often go unnoticed, BGYA Youth Recognition Award night is a great way to honor all of those deserving youth working hard and showing acts of kindness,” said Fran Hotchkiss, BGYA Youth Recognition award chair and Outreach Liaison Librarian at Brandon Township Public Library.
Nominations are due by March 9, and more information and nomination forms can be found on the Brandon school district website under community, Brandon Groveland Youth Assistance and in youth assistance forms.
