Youth of the Year 2018

Since 1947, Youth of the Year has been Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of club teens. Club members who earn the Youth of the Year title embody the values of leadership service; academic excellence; and healthy lifestyles. They exemplify the critical impact that Boys & Girls Clubs have on the lives of young people.

The Boys & Girls Club of Washington County recognize members ages 14 to 18 for the Youth of the Year program. Each of the seven locations have a Youth of the Year candidate that competes to receive the award of Youth of the Year. Our Youth of the Year winner receives a $1,000 scholarship to the college of their choice. The winner competes at State for a $5,000 scholarship then to regionals for a $10,000.

On March 22, 2018, we announced our Youth of the Year, Matthew Hernandez Rockwell.  Congratulations Matt!
