Open nominations for Colusa County youth making a difference

The Colusa County Office of Education is accepting nominations for its 12th Annual Caring Youth Counts Awards.

This event was created based on the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets. The Developmental Assets® are 40 common sense, positive experiences and qualities that help influence choices young people make and help them become caring, responsible, successful adults. Because of its basis in youth development, resiliency, and prevention research and its proven effectiveness, the Developmental Assets framework has become one of the most widely used approaches to positive youth development in the United States.

The Caring Youth Counts event is based on Asset No. 7 “Community Values Youth.”

Every day, Colusa County youth make positive contributions to our community and healthy decisions for themselves.

The Colusa County Office of Education wants to acknowledge their efforts by having people in the community nominate them for this award. Youth can be nominated in one or more of the categories listed below:

Heroic Resilience: This courageous young person has overcome or is in the midst of overcoming challenges in his/her life.

Interest in Community Services: This young person voluntarily contributes to and serves his/her community, family, church, or school, giving of him/herself to support others.

Strength of Character: This young person is admirable for their efforts to remain true to his/her character by being honest, respectful, and/or standing up to peer pressure.

To be eligible for nomination, anyone can nominate a Colusa County youth, including other youth, parents, neighbors, program leaders or educators.

Nominee must be between the ages of 5 years and 18 years. Nominee must demonstrate positive effort, achievement, or strong character. Nominee must attend schools within Colusa County.

For more information or to obtain a nomination form, call or email Patricia Barba (530) 473-1350, ext. 10327 or email: pbarba@ccoe.net.
