YMCA YOUTH CHARACTER AWARDS

The YMCA Youth Character Awards are an opportunity to recognize teens in our community who incorporate the Y values into their everyday lives, demonstrate exceptional leadership and stand as examples to those around them.

At the Y, our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are not just a way of thinking – they are an integral part of who we are. They are the essential principles that unite and guide our behavior, our interactions with one another and our decisions.

If you know an extraordinary teen who exemplifies the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, nominate them for a YMCA of Greater Louisville 2021 Youth Character Award. You can complete the online nomination form below or stop by your nearest Greater Louisville area YMCA to pick up a paper copy of the nomination form.

Nominations for the 2021 YMCA Youth Character Awards will be accepted through Friday, September 24, 2021.
