April 15 deadline for YCA award
Area seniors can still apply for Youth Citizenship Award
April 3, 2019
There is still time for graduating seniors from Carbon County School District 2 high schools and home schools to apply for the Valley Service Organization’s (VSO) $500 Youth Citizenship Award (YCA).
Carol Beach, YCA chairman for VSO, said the application deadline is Monday, April 15. Application forms are available from school counselors. Home schooled students may get them by contacting Beach at 307-326-8012.
Beach reminded students and their parents that this is not a scholarship or academic award but is based on the student’s understanding of what comprises a good citizen and his or her involvement in school and community activities.
Beach added there are no strings attached as to how the award may be spent. The winner will be announced at the May 23 VSO meeting.
