Our 2014 Youth of the Year to be announced soon!
Youth of the Year is a Boys & Girls Clubs of America national competition through which Club members age 14 to 18 compete for the privilege and honor of representing Boys & Girls Clubs in their communities, states, and around the country. They present resumes, complete interviews, and give speeches about their leadership, character, and service to Club and the community. Along with leadership recognition, these youth receive scholarship money. State winners each receive a $1,000 scholarship and participate in regional competitions. Five regional winners each receive a $10,000 scholarship and compete on the national level. The National Youth of the Year receives up to an additional $50,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States. Due to the generous support of local partners, the local BGCR winner receives a $4,500 scholarship and the runner up receives a $500 scholarship.
