The Kody O’Bear Community Youth Award
The Kody O’Bear Community Youth Award was created to showcase youth in our community who have overcome challenges and exemplify the Kody O’Bear Mission of “Making a Positive Difference” by contributing to their community and/or the world. This contribution can be demonstrated in many ways ranging from involvement in existing local volunteer programs to the creation of a project which assists others or enhances their community.
To be eligible, students must be in grades Six through Twelve when the award is received. Although academic achievement is valued, greater emphasis is placed on students who have selflessly used their talents and time to assist others or give back to their community.
Nominations can be submitted by individuals, teachers, or organization leaders. Candidates will be selected by a Committee of community members. Upon selection, the recipient will be awarded a trophy, a certificate, and $250 for their education or for their project. In addition, there will be a press release which will include a photo of the recipient with Kody O’Bear and a description of the student’s achievement.
