YOUTH OF THE YEAR

Established nationally in 1947, Youth of the Year is BGCA's premier recognition program for Club members, promoting service to Club, community and family; academic success; strong moral character; life goals; and poise and public speaking ability. The program is most effective when used as a year-round tool for fostering young people's character, personal growth and leadership qualities.

After a competition, each U.S. State Youth of The Year winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship and participate in regional competitions. Five regional winners will each receive a $10,000 scholarship and compete on the national level. The National Youth of the Year receives up to an additional $50,000 scholarship, and is installed by the President of the United States.
