Do you know a Douglas County teenager, between the ages of 13 and 19, who has overcome adversity and created positive change in their lives, as well as the lives of others?

Nominations for the 2022 Douglas County Outstanding Youth Awards are now being accepted. Ten award recipients will have the opportunity to share their special night with family members, their adult supporters and elected officials at an April reception hosted by the Douglas County Youth Initiative at the Douglas County Commissioners Hearing Room in Castle Rock.

This one-of-a-kind award encompasses all youth: youth who have not finished their K-12 education, youth in traditional classroom settings, youth in group homes, youth in alternative schools, and youth in foster homes.

Award recipients will receive a signed letter from elected officials recognizing their achievements, a $100 certificate for educational or activity fees to be redeemed at a future date, and countywide recognition of their award.

Nominators will be invited to speak at the ceremony about the obstacles the individual they nominated overcame and how those individuals have inspired change.

For more information on the Douglas County Outstanding Youth Awards, please visit the awards website or contact Marsha Alston at [email protected] or 303-814-5327.

Nomination forms may be completed online or downloaded from the website and must be submitted no later than March 4, 2022.

The Douglas County Youth Initiative was established in 2005 to coordinate local youth-serving efforts and assess the needs of the County’s youngest residents. It is an active collaboration between Douglas County Government, the Douglas County School District, the City of Lone Tree, the Town of Castle Rock, the Town of Parker, the City of Castle Pines, the Douglas County Library District and the Highlands Ranch Metro District.
