Focus on Youth Awards
About the Focus On Youth Awards
The Focus on Youth Awards is organized and administered by the City of Mount Pearl, in partnership with the Mount Pearl Sport Alliance. The awards are designed to honour youth and adults working with youth, who make outstanding contributions to the community in the areas of arts, sports, self-improvement, voluntarism and science. There are 16 separate awards.
The chance for young people to access these prestigious awards lies mainly with the adult population. We solicit the help of youth agencies and organizations to nominate at least one person for each award.
Although there is only one winner for each award, it is an honour to be nominated in one or more of these categories. The awards are sponsored by various community-minded businesses and corporations.
Do your part in acknowledging our City’s tremendous youth! The deadline for nominations is March 2, 2020.
Nomination forms can be found below. Once completed, forms can be delivered to Mount Pearl City Hall, Mount Pearl Summit Centre, or emailed to Garry Fraser (firstname.lastname@example.org). A photo of each nominee/nominee group must be included. Nominations are for the 2019 competition year, which is January 1 – December 31, 2019.
Awards will be presented at the Focus on Youth Awards Banquet & Show on May 13, 2020.
Details and criteria for each award can be viewed in the Nomination Package.
