Outstanding Youth Awards

Attention High School Students

Could you use $1,000 toward your goals after High School? Do you demonstrate qualities that make you an Outstanding Youth in St. Lucie County? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then we have a plan for you!

Accepting Applications

The Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County is accepting applications for its 2018 to 2019 Outstanding Youth Awards to celebrate youth who are making a difference in our community. Children’s Services Council will award five current High School students, who are participating in our funded programs with a $1,000 scholarship.

Each winner must have demonstrated outstanding skills in leadership, achievement, and/or community service. Winners will be honored at Children’s Services Council’s Annual Awards dinner in May.


To apply, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be at least a freshman in high school and no older than a junior.
  • Must currently be participating in a Children’s Services Council funded program.
  • Must not have been selected for this award in the past.

Please complete and submit the online Outstanding Youth Application Form and have a representative from your program complete the Recommendation Form. You must have both pieces submitted to be considered for the scholarship. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
