Youth of the Year
The Youth of the Year program promotes and recognizes service to Club and community, academic performance and contributions to family and spiritual life. Each year, we select a Youth of the Year who receives a certificate and medallion and then enters state competition. State winners receive a plaque and enter the regional competition. Pawtucket has had several state winners. Regional winners receive a $5,000 scholarship and enter a national competition held in Washington, DC. The National Youth of the Year receives an additional $10,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States. The national program is sponsored by The Reader's Digest Foundation.
