We have passed the deadline for applications to be turned in for this year’s Young Humanitarian Award. This $5,000.00 college scholarship is awarded to an inspiring young person in Utah who has excelled in giving back to their community, and let me tell you, I have seen some incredible applications come into the office this year! We are SO excited to have 73 amazing Utah students in the running to receive the title of Youthlinc’s 2011 Young Humanitarian. This year’s award is sponsored by the George & Dolores Eccles Foundation, Deseret News, and US Bank.
The application judges are in the process of reviewing the applications and interviews with the top 10 finalists will be held April 30th in downtown Salt Lake City. The winner and runners up will receive their awards at the Annual Benefit and Silent Auction held this year at LaCaille on May 19, 2011. We hope you all will attend!
We will keep you posted as the finalists are chosen!
