LAYSB seeks nominees for annual awards

The deadline to submit a nomination for the annual Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau’s service to youth awards is Friday, March 16.

Do you know someone who is a great role model for youth? Someone who demonstrates a passion for the well-being of youth?

Do you know a youth who is making a difference in their community?

Do you know a law enforcement officer that has gone above and beyond his or her job duties to connect with and make a difference in the lives of youth?

If any of the above statements are true, LAYSB wants to hear from you!

Nominations may be made by any area resident, local business owner or any area civic or service group. A connection to Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau is preferred but not necessary.

The winners will be honored at special presentations in front of family, friends and community members and also in local publications.

Awards are given for service during 2011 in the following categories:

• “On Behalf of Youth Award” honors individuals who demonstrate a passion for the well-being of youth.  This award will be given to one adult and one youth.

• “James Trudeau Award” honors a licensed police officer for service or activities related to youth.

Questions about the awards may be directed to Jackie Kottke, Development Coordinator, by calling 651-464-3685 or e-mail [email protected]
