Young people: Apply for YES award

June 1. Canopy Housing Foundation and Realtor members are calling on area youth who are engaged in service and improving the community to apply for the Canopy Housing Foundation’s Youth Excellence in Service (YES) Award. The award was initiated to recognize youth working to improve the quality of life in the region.

When young people are engaged in community service they are more likely to become the next generation of adults focused on building a stronger community. By establishing the YES Award, the local Realtor community seeks to encourage, cultivate and celebrate area youth ages 10 to 18 who are working to address a broad spectrum of needs in an effort to build a stronger community.

Nominations and applications are due July 15. The chosen recipient will receive a plaque and $500 will be donated to the charity of their choice in their name. The recipient will also be honored at the foundation’s awards luncheon on Sept. 5 and/or at the recipient’s school assembly.

The YES Award is the youth companion to the Canopy Housing Foundation’s annual Humanitarian Award, which recognizes individuals, projects, or groups making outstanding contributions to enhance the quality of life in this region.
