February 10, 2020

The New York State Senate Youth Leadership Recognition Awards

Do you know a successful high school student whose accomplishments make your school proud? Today is your chance to recognize that student for their achievements and the great work they do to benefit their community. The New York State Senate’s Youth Leadership Recognition Awards program honors outstanding students who will become our future leaders.

You and/or your staff can nominate a student by filling out the online nomination form, attaching a recommendation letter and the student’s brief statement about their accomplishment(s). Nominations may come from teachers, administrators, counselors, or other school faculty.  We are looking for well-rounded candidates who excel not only academically, but through leadership in extracurricular and volunteer activities.  There are four categories to choose from, including: Academics, Athletics, Arts and Community Service.

Selected students will be presented with a certificate of recognition and their story will be shared on my Senate website. Participating schools are invited to nominate a maximum of five junior or senior students for the program. All nominations must be submitted online by April 2, 2021.
