Support the Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards
The Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards started in 1986 with the hope of honoring brave youth in our communities who have battled hardship and adversity in their life and won.
The awards program is asking for donations to put towards scholarships for youth in our communities.
This program seeks out the quiet unsung heroes in their communities that traditionally would go unnoticed. Some of the hardships recognized by the program include homelessness, poverty, bullying, gang involvement, physical/mental abuse, unstable home life, tragedy, physical/mental impairment, drug abuse, and much more.
Each year the cities in Adams County solicit nominations and in 2018 over 100 nominations were submitted! These nominees were honored by their respective cities and their nominations were then forwarded to the County Selection Committee responsible for picking the top 20 to be recognized at a special banquet in April. The highest scoring of theses 20 nominees were awarded scholarships for their diligence and perseverance.
Currently the program is looking for donations for scholarships for the 2019 year. All money goes directly to recipients to help further their educational goals. Please feel free to reach out to Alison Digan, Public Relations Coordinator at
for information and questions.
