The mayors and commissioners of Adams County are asking for 2021 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 inspiration and role models for their peers.
Each year, this program recognizes young people in grades 6-12 (up to 20 years old) who have overcome personal adversity to create a positive change in their own lives or for those around them. If you know of an individual who has had this impact on others but is not in a school setting, 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 our community and recognize them for their accomplishments. Businesses may also help by making a monetary or in-kind donation.
The deadline to submit nominations is Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021.
If you’d like to nominate a student for the ACMCYA or have questions, please contact Abby Martinez at the City of Brighton Office of Youth Services at 303-655-2186 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
