York County's Outstanding Youth Award Scholarships nomination deadline approaching

York County students have a shot at one of four $500 scholarships from the York County Board of Supervisors and Youth Commission. 

Citizens' nominations for the 2017 Outstanding Youth Award Scholarships are due by 5 p.m. Wednesday to the Parks, Recreation and Tourism office, according to a York County news release. 

People can nominate any York County student in grades 9 through 12 in four categories: community service, compassion, courage and overall achievement. The student must reside in York County and attend public, private or home school, the release stated. 

A $500 is given to the winner in each category, and can be put toward any post-high school education or vocational training. 

Winners will be recognized at a reception and the May 16 Board of Supervisor's meeting, the release stated. All nominees will receive letters toward the end of April letting them know of their nomination and who put their name forward. 

Nomination forms are available for download from the York County Youth Commission's website or from the Yorktown and Tabb Libraries as well as the Williamsburg and James City County libraries, and at the York County PRT office.

Williams can be reached by phone at 757-345-2341.
