Chamber Seeking Outstanding Young People

Do you know someone under 20 who is committed to bettering the community? Nominate him or her for a Young Citizen Award before Oct. 31.

Maybe she collects toiletries and treats to send to U.S. troops overseas.

Maybe he spends every weekend volunteering at a local food pantry.

Whatever it is that young people around Bucks County are doing right, the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce wants to know about it.

The Chamber is gearing up for its annual Young Citizens Awards, which honor and celebrate our young people for efforts that often go unrecognized.

The Chamber is asking for nominations of any young person age 20 or younger who has demonstrated "exceptional commitment to the principles of good citizenship and community involvement."

The awards are presented for acts of courage; exceptional community service; unusual service to a person(s) in need; extraordinary display of character; unique personal achievement; or outstanding commitment to principle and service. Please note: this is not a scholastics award.

The deadline for nominations is Oct. 31, 2012.

Nominations should include:

  • Date of Nomination
  • Name of Nominee
  • Email Address of Nominee
  • Email Address of Nominator
  • Home Address & Telephone Number of Nominee
  • Age
  • School Attending
  • Grade in School
  • Nominator relationship to nominee
  • Telephone Number of Nominator

Nominators are asked to limit their nominations to one and to include all factors that might be considered. Nominators are asked to include detailed reasons for the nomination and why and how the nominee fits within the Young Citizens criteria.

A limited number of recipients will be selected.

Please email submissions to: amanda@centralbuckschamber.com

Sponsored by David and Peg Werrett, of Wells Fargo Advisors, the awards are scheduled to be presented on Nov. 16, noon to 1:30 p.m., at The Waterwheel Restaurant in Doylestown.
