The Arapahoe County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards Program is seeking applications through March 8. The program recognizes youth who overcame personal challenges, maintained academic excellence and served as a role model.
In 2018, Arapahoe County honored 38 teens and awarded 16 college scholarships totaling $17,500.
This annual program honors teens from area high schools across the county who have overcome significant personal adversity, such as living with economic hardship or disability; overcoming physical or emotional challenges; providing financial or emotional support to family members; caring for a sick or elderly parent, sibling or friend; or losing or living without a parent or sibling.
Teens can be nominated by schools counselors, teachers, mentors and friends.
