he City of Everett celebrates each year youth in the community who give in a variety of ways with the distinguished Mayor’s Youth Achievement Awards. Nominations are being accepted through April 12, 2013. The award recognizes the accomplishments of individuals ages 8 to 20 who attend school in the Everett area. Students who attend schools in the Everett School District or those who have an Everett address, as well as those attending private schools or receiving a home-school education, are all eligible for consideration.
Winners will be selected from each age category.
The goal of the awards is to emphasize the positive achievements of the city’s young people by recognizing those who have distinguished themselves in such areas as community service, politics, arts and entertainment, academics, athletics, citizenship and/or who have overcome obstacles to accomplish their goals.
Mayor Ray Stephanson believes Everett is fortunate to have many outstanding young people who, by their own actions, have established themselves as a foundation of hope for the future. In order to recognize the achievements and contributions that students have made in our community, Mayor Stephanson encourages nominations of deserving Everett youth for this award.
“Most people know a deserving youth,” Mayor Stephanson said. “I encourage you to honor those outstanding young people for their contributions to our community.”
