Over these last 50 years, Salute to Youth recipients have helped changed the communities and world we live in through their extraordinary voluntary efforts. They have made contributions to a countless number of social causes for which they have passion, both locally and away from home. These young people have truly demonstrated that today’s youth will be our leaders of tomorrow.
Nominations will be accepted from any of the public and private high schools in the metro area. Students eligible for recognition must have made outstanding contributions to their communities and/or humanity and must have a minimum High School GPA of 2.75. Recognition includes an awards banquet for the recipients and their guests; a press release for their local paper; and a plaque commemorating their recognition. As funding allows, several scholarship awards may be given to support high education endeavors.
