Young Humanitarian Award

Though our society recognizes young people for their accomplishments in sports and academics, the Youthlinc Utah Young Humanitarian Award celebrates outstanding humanitarian service among youth, sponsored by the George S. & Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation. Youthlinc has organized this annual statewide search since 2005.
