Starting this summer, in partnership with Anchorage School District, we reached out to you, the Anchorage community, to nominate students bettering their community. We would like to shine a spotlight on these unbelievable students with a showcase and awards event; The Youth Summit Awards.
While there are many events and awards that focus on academics or athletics, this one focuses on good deeds, kindness, community involvement, friendship in the classroom or just kids doing something awesome in their neighborhood, church or school that makes our area a better place.
We are honoring 36 awesome Anchorage students total. 12 each from elementary, middle and high school, including private, charter and home school! We will honor these students with a red-carpet style ceremony. Each honor recipient will receive a plaque with his/her name engraved on the front.
