Press Release, Orleans County Youth Board

The Orleans County Youth Board will let the community know just how outstanding our local citizens are through annual Youth Recognition Awards.

Those 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.

In addition to the youth awards, at least two adults will be honored for their service to young people.

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 can be downloaded at the Orleans County web site (click here).

All nominations will be due by March 31. For information, contact the Youth Bureau at 585-344-3960 or
