Celebrate Youth! still accepting nominations

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Bauer Family Resources is bringing its mission statement, “Creating brighter tomorrows by strengthening children and families today,” to life with the Celebrate Youth! banquet.

The organization is recognizing students who overcome obstacles in their personal lives to achieve success. Students must also be currently enrolled in high school and reside in Tippecanoe County to qualify. Winners will receive $1,000, and one student will receive the Youth of the Year award worth $2,000.

In addition to shining the spotlight on local students, the Celebrate Youth! banquet also serves as a fundraiser for Bauer Family Resources.

If you’d like to nominate someone, you can either pick up an application in person at the Bauer Community Center at 330 Fountain Street, or you can fill one out online.

Applications are due Friday, Feb 28. The Celebrate Youth! banquet will be held Tuesday, April 8.
