Nominations now open for Whitby’s Celebrating Youth Award

The Whitby Youth Council has created the ‘Celebrating Youth Awards’ that will be awarded to Youth in Whitby who demonstrate a commitment to community involvement as well as personal achievement. The Town of Whitby has numerous youth who serve as community leaders and the Celebrating Youth Awards give the community an opportunity to showcase youth’s selfless contributions and acts of good will that make the Town of Whitby a better place to live, work and play.

Nominated Youth must be Whitby residents between the ages of 12 and 18 who have made the Town of Whitby a better place. Such acts can include: building community ties, involvement in civic issues and activities, or helping to create a safe and healthy community.
