Join TOGETHER! to learn, engage and support the health and well-being of all young people.
Join us May 13th, 2017 to celebrate young people who have shown leadership and resilience in the face of personal hardship!
The Awards of Excellence is an annual event that honors and celebrates youth in our community whose paths have been marked with adversity and whose grace and strength continue to shine through. Honorees are featured in The Olympian newspaper and publicly recognized at an award ceremony. Together with our partners we are proud to continue this tradition for another year based on the knowledge that supporting and encouraging young people helps our community thrive.
Nominations are Now Open!
Schools and community organizations are invited to nominate a deserving youth between the ages of 11 and 21 who has shown leadership and resilience in the face of personal hardship. Junior and senior nominees will be considered by a committee of our staff and partners for one of five $1,000 scholarships, two of which will be awarded based on the theme “Service Above Self.”
Submit your nomination by downloading this document and emailing the completed nomination with their school picture or a head-and-shoulders snapshot to CSpencer@thurstonTOGETHER.org with the subject “[nominee name] AoE Headshot.” The deadline for nominations HAS BEEN EXTENDED to April 14, 2017. Please consider all the forms of diversity that characterize your community in making your selection.
