The Arapahoe County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Award is an award that recognizes teenagers between the ages of 13 and 19 who have overcome personal adversity and created positive change in their lives. This program provides business, community and civic leaders an opportunity to actively demonstrate their belief in and support for the young people in our communities.
Teens need recognition and support. In these days when much of the press about teenagers is negative, this award focuses on teenagers who have triumphed over great odds and serve as inspirations and role models. If you know young people who would be good candidates for this award, please help us identify them by completing the nomination form.
The 2018 nomination deadline is Friday, April 13, 2018.
Mission of the ACMCYA
To identify and recognize teenagers who have overcome obstacles and risen to challenges life has presented.
The ACMCYA is unique because it recognizes youth who have overcome difficult situations in their lives by making positive changes and by exhibiting strength and determination in the face of adversity. The young people we recognize have had a positive influence on themselves and those around them and often have not had any official recognition.
This award is unique because it encompasses all youth: youth who have not finished school, youth in traditional classroom settings, youth in group homes, youth in alternative schools and emancipated youth.
