Youth of the Month
One of the most popular of Exchange's youth projects, the Youth of the Month Award recognizes industrious high school students who attain high levels of scholastic achievement, community involvement and leadership. This proven program not only rewards outstanding young people, but also provides an incentive for other youngsters to strive for equally high levels of achievement.
Cooperation from school authorities and youth leaders is easily attainable. As a result of the favorable publicity which the program generates, the sponsoring Exchange Club enhances its own community image.
Once a Youth of the Month program has been successfully implemented, the groundwork for conducting an annual Youth of the Year competition is already in place. Selection of the Youth of the Year is simply made from among the club's Youth of the Month recipients for that school year. Then, the club's Youth of the Year advances to district competition, and ultimately, an opportunity to vie for the prestigious National Youth of the Year Award.
Specially designed plaques and certificates, along with a detailed Youth of the Month information guide and application, can be obtained from National Headquarters.
While the recipients are selected by classroom teachers, the Exchange Club is responsible for providing the awards and promoting the program in the community.
We recognize and honor students from Clements and Kempner High Schools
