Club Member Awards

The National Youth of the Year program, Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier character and leadership initiative, recognizes outstanding contributions to a Club member’s family, school, community and Boys & Girls Club, as well as personal challenges and obstacles overcome. 

Participants are chosen on local and state levels, culminating with five regional winners meeting in Washington, D.C., to compete for the National Youth of the Year honor.  Since the program’s inception in 1947, each National Youth of the Year has met with the President of the United States to formally accept the award and begin a one-year term as the teen spokesperson for all Boys & Girls Club members.  The young people who earn recognition as Youth of the Year are living proof that Boys & Girls Clubs work.
Indeed, there is no stronger testimony than "Great Futures Start Here."

Local Youth of the Year sponsors Dennis & Nancy Kenner

Locally our Youth of the Year and Jr. Youth of the Year winners receive a computer, printer, scanner and monitor from Kenner Consulting each year.  Over the past several years Dennis has volunteered numerous hours to the Club as our IT specialist, as well as fixed many computer problems.  He does this all for free, just taking the smile from a kids face as payment.  We really appreciate all that Dennis has done for our Club!
