Focus on Youth Awards

DUE TO COVID-19, THE 2020 FOCUS ON YOUTH AWARDS CEREMONY HAS BEEN POSTPONED.

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.

Details and criteria for each award can be viewed in the Nomination Package.
