The Genesee County & Batavia City Youth boards are extending an extra effort to let the community know just how outstanding our local citizens can be. A Youth Recognition Banquet will be held on Thursday, April 3. This event is an opportunity to thank select individuals for their service to the community.
Awards are given in three separate categories. The Youth Recognition Awards are presented to those youth who have performed an outstanding service for their community, and/or have assumed an extraordinary role within their families. The Adult Youth Worker Award is given to a Genesee County youth-serving professional, in a paid position, whose work surpasses normal expectations. The Adult Volunteer Recognition Award is presented to an adult who serves the youth of Genesee County in a volunteer setting.
A community-wide mailing with nomination forms and instructions was conducted. Forms can also be accessed by visiting the Genesee County Web site www.co.genesee.ny.us and clicking on “Youth Bureau. All nominations are due by Feb. 24.
