COVINGTON, Ky. - Do you know someone under age 28 who had trouble with the law when they were younger but ever since has made great strides in turning his or her life around?
If so, the Kentucky Juvenile Justice Advisory Board would like to hear about him or her.
The JJAB’s Subcommittee of Kentucky’s Youth is seeking nominations for its Kentucky Spirit of Youth Award.
According to the board, the award is given every year “to recognize and celebrate a young adult ... who has made great strides despite involvement with the juvenile justice system, overcome personal obstacles, and is today making significant contributions to society.”
The award “also provides JJAB and the public with an important opportunity to learn from a young person's direct experience about the hard work and dedication it takes to build a better life, and how juvenile justice professionals and systems can most effectively be of help.”
To nominate someone, fill out the form that can be found HERE
(you can download it and type straight into it) and email it to the addresses marked on the form.
But don’t dawdle: Deadline is Aug. 31.
