Youthlinc is accepting applications for the 2021 Youthlinc Utah Young Humanitarian Award, which recognizes service-minded high school students in Utah with $22,000 in college scholarships.
“This year as we have faced challenges like never before, I’m reminded of a quote by Mr. Rogers ‘When I was a young boy and would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping,’” Youthlinc Local Service Director Shannon Moss said in a statement. “Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen our Utah students become ‘helpers’ and perform remarkable acts of kindness in both large and small ways. We have been amazed at the many ways they have stepped up to help one another.”
“We want to celebrate all of the many ways Utah students are working to create change and make this world a little kinder place to be, especially during the events of the last year,” Moss continued.
The application deadline is March 21. To apply, visit youthlinc.org and review the requirements on the Young Humanitarian Award webpage.
Also, any student committed to attending the University of Utah will receive additional scholarship funds from the University Union Scholarship Fund managed by the A. Ray Olpin University Union Building.
