The Orleans County Youth Board has extended the deadline for nominating people for the annual youth recognition awards until this Friday.

For the 37th year, the Orleans County Youth Board will let the community know just how outstanding our local citizens are. The 37th Annual Youth Recognition Banquet will be held on Thursday, May 16.  This event is an opportunity to thank selected individuals for their service to the community.

Awards are given in three separate categories.  The Youth Recognition Awards are presented to those youth who have performed an outstanding service for their community and/or have assumed an extraordinary role within their families.

The Helen Brinsmaid Award is given to an Orleans County youth-serving professional, in a paid position, whose work surpasses normal expectations.

The Eileen Heye Adult Volunteer Recognition Award is presented to an adult who serves the youth of Orleans County in a volunteer setting.

Nomination forms are available by clicking here. All nominations will be due by March 29, 2019.
