21st Annual U-ROC Youth Awards
What are the U-ROC (Richmond Outstanding Community) Youth Awards?
Every year during BC Youth Week (May 1-7) the City of Richmond hosts the U-ROC (Richmond Outstanding Community) Youth Awards to celebrate the achievements and dedication of Outstanding Youth and Asset Champions within the Richmond community. 2019 marks the 21st anniversary of this exciting event.
The City asks for professionals and community members working with youth, who know of an Outstanding Youth, Asset Champion or Youth Group to nominate them for an award. Please take the time to consider those who go above and beyond the day to day expectations and activities required of them, and those who may not otherwise receive recognition for their achievements.
Youth in this category are nominated for displaying exceptional qualities, making Richmond a better place and overcoming barriers towards their personal success.
These are adults who have shown dedication and commitment to helping youth build Developmental Assets. They go out of their way to inspire, mentor and make a difference in the lives of youth.
This category recognizes groups of youth who have made significant accomplishments as a team. These groups may have contributed by volunteering their time, working on a special project, or have gone the extra mile to be inclusive and welcoming.
The 2019 U-ROC Awards will be held on Thursday, May 2, 2019 at Gateway Theatre.
Nominations for the 21st Annual U-ROC Awards are now CLOSED.
