Youth Recognition Awards – 2016 Nominations
DEADLINE: Thursday, March 17, 2016, at 4:00 p.m.
Farmington Youth Assistance (FYA) is seeking youth nominations for its 31st Annual Youth Recognition Awards. We are looking for youth who deserve recognition for their extensive service, but who may not normally receive it from the community at large. One of the goals of Farmington Youth Assistance is to encourage positive examples of youth volunteerism. In order to honor these deserving youth we must locate them, and for that, we rely on you.
To be eligible for nomination, youth must…
• Reside in Farmington or Farmington Hills, attend Farmington Public Schools, or perform community service in these communities
• Attend grades 7 through 12
• Exhibit exemplary volunteer service through their community, faith-based organization or school totaling a minimum of 100 hours. Paid services performed and community service for high school credit such as National Honor Society or the courts are NOT eligible. Length and quality of commitment and individual initiative will be considered.
• Nominations must be typed or printed clearly & legibly on the attached form and submitted by the nominator. If you need more space, you may attach additional pages.
• The judgment of the Selection Committee is final.
Nominators should complete the Nomination Form for each youth nominated. The more detailed information given about the youth, the more likely the youth will be selected for this award. Feel free to make copies of the nomination form if you would like to nominate multiple youths. Electronic versions of the nomination form are available from FYA office at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need additional information, please contact us at 248-489-3434.
The awards will be presented at the Youth Recognition Awards Breakfast on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 (beginning at 7:30 AM) at Glen Oaks Country Club, 30500 West Thirteen Mile Road, Farmington Hills, MI 48334.
Nominations must be submitted to the FYA office and received by Thursday, March 17, 2016, at 4:00 pm to be eligible for the 2016 awards and may be e-mailed, mailed, or faxed to the FYA office.
