2017 Youth of the Year // January 26, 2017 // Liberty Hall
The 2017 Youth of the Year event presented by Peoples Bank is the premier recognition program for Boys & Girls Club. Club members who earn the Youth of the Year title embody the values of leadership service, academic excellence and healthy lifestyles. They exemplify the powerful impact that Boys & Girls Club has on the lives of young people.
You will have the opportunity to meet five special Lawrence candidates who have spent months preparing for this event. One will be selected to participate in the state competition. State winners advance to regional competitions; regional winners advance to the National Youth of the Year competition.
