The Youth of the Year Program is designed to promote and recognize service to Club and community, academic performance and contributions to family and spiritual life. Competition begins with each Club selecting a Youth of the Year who receives a certificate and medallion then enters state competition. State winners participate in several other competitions at different levels and sometimes end up at a national competition held in Washington, DC. The National Youth of the Year receives a $15,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States. Click here to meet our latest Youth of the Year!
