The Boys & Girls Club of Collier County will hold its second annual Youth of the Year Celebration on March 24, 2014 at Artis-Naples. Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program for members. It was established to foster young people’s character, personal growth and leadership qualities.
To participate in Youth of the Year, candidates must be nominated, write and present two speeches as well as gather support letters. Community leaders serve as local judges who ultimately choose the Youth of the Year from three finalists.
The Youth of the Year Celebration will honor nominees ages 14-18. The 2014 Youth of the Year winner will be recognized at the event and each Club’s winner will go on to compete statewide, regionally and nationally to receive up to $50,000 in college scholarships and installment by the President of the United States.
Special guests joining to honor these remarkable young people are proud Boys & Girls Club Alumni and retired NBA professional basketball player, Shaquille O’Neal as well as philanthropic advocate and ESPN college basketball analyst, Dick Vitale.
