On Thursday, May 12, 2011 the Rotary Club of Lynnwood and the Youth Challenge Awards Committee (YCA) proudly recognized 41 extraordinary young citizens and 4 youth groups of Snohomish County for their contributions in the categories of community service, courage, creativity, environmental service, inspiration and leadership.
Six individual nominees and one group were recipients of cash scholarships for their outstanding achievements. The YCA is very proud of all the nominees for their individual contributions, each nominee’s commitment has truly earned them this recognition. The YCA would like to thank those who took the time to nominate these exceptional young individuals. This event would not have been possible without the continued support of our sponsors the Journal Media Group, Whidbey Island Bank and the Rotary Club of Lynnwood.
