Being named Youth of the Year is the highest honor a Boys & Girls Club member can receive. The Youth of the Year is the Boys & Girls Club’s premier youth recognition program for Club members ages 14-18. The program promotes and celebrates their service to the Club, community, family, academic performance, spiritual values, life goals, poise and public speaking. The Club’s local Youth of the Year is awarded a $1,000 scholarship and participates in a state competition. State winners participate in a regional competition. Each regional winner receives a $10,000 scholarship and competes on a national level. The National Youth of the Year receives an additional $15,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States.

Also being honored are Michael W. Moskowitz (VP Business Development at DriverSide) and The Argonaut Newspaper as the two 2010 Community Leader Award recipients. Community Leader Award honorees are recognized for their exceptional volunteerism and long-standing support of the club.
