Nominations Currently Accepted for Annual Adult Service to Youth Award

January 20, 2015 01:08 PM

The City of Galesburg in cooperation with the Galesburg Youth Commission, is currently accepting nominations for the Annual Adult Service to Youth Award to recognize Galesburg adult residents who give extra-effort in serving the youth of Galesburg, through volunteering their time and/or assistance. 

Examples of that "extra-effort" could include working in a volunteer role to assist youth with activities, academic or extracurricular programs or helping with things like basic needs.  A subcommittee of the Galesburg Youth Commission will consider the applications, and the selected individual will be invited to attend a Galesburg City Council meeting to receive a mayoral proclamation. 

"This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize a citizen who has really gone the extra mile to support youth in our community," said Julie Main, Liaison, Galesburg Youth Commission. "These individuals are actively working to make Galesburg a great place for youth, and this is one way we recognize those efforts."

Nominations for the award are due March 2, 2015 at City Hall.  Nomination forms are available on the City of Galesburg website or can be picked up at City Hall, Community Development Department. For more information, please contact the Galesburg Community Development Department at 309/345-3614.
