EL CAJON–The City of El Cajon Teen Coalition presents a “Youth of the Year” Award to recognize those youth who go above and beyond in serving their community through their leadership abilities and/or their quality or level of community service in El Cajon.
Leadership can be defined as those individuals who consistently facilitate a team vision and help guide others towards success. Community service helps better the community through the value and impact of those served. Final awards are based on dedication, commitment beyond what may be required by school, and demonstrated impact on the community.
Two youth will be awarded each year: one youth currently at the middle school level (grades 6 – 8) and one youth currently at the high school level (grades 9 – 12). All nominations are reserved for youth who are residents of the City of El Cajon. Youth will be recognized and awarded for service accomplished within the calendar year prior to the nomination period. We are currently awarding work accomplished between January 1 and December 31, 2011.
Applications are available at local schools, City of El Cajon Recreation Centers, and on the City’s website at www.cityofelcajon.us. All applications must be received by March 9, 2012.
For more information, please call Assistant Recreation Services Supervisor Jennifer Martinez at (619) 441-1516.
