Youth of the Year

Congratulations to our 2017 Youth of the Year, Shelby Rosebush, for being named the Nevada Youth of the Year!

The National Youth of the Year program is designed to promote and recognize service to Club and community, academic performances and contributions to family and spiritual life. Competition begins with each Club selecting a Youth of the Year candidate from their own site, who then enters the state competition. Local winners receive a $1,000 scholarship and the chance to compete at the state competition. State winners receive a $5,000.00 scholarship and then enter the Regional competition. Each five Regional winners receive a $10,000.00 scholarship and then enters the National competition held in Washington, DC. The National Youth of the Year receives an additional $15,000.00 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States.

For the past nine years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley has held an annual Youth of the Year banquet to highlight our teens and honor our board members, staff, volunteers and community members. Each year Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley holds their banquet in January. We are very proud of all our past winners and what they continue to accomplish!
