City staff is seeking nominations for the Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Award (ACMCYA). The ACMCYA is an annual award program that recognizes Adams County youth between grades 6-12, or those young people who may not currently be in a school setting but are 20 years of age or less, who have overcome personal adversity and created positive change in their lives.
The ACMCYA is a two-tiered program that honors nominees at the local government and county level. This award encompasses all youth who have overcome different types of adversity despite their circumstances. Last year, there were two nominees from Commerce City. One of the city’s nominees was honored as Adam County’s Top 20 students at an April 30 banquet at the Riverdale Country Club.
Nomination forms are due Feb. 19, 2016. Youth can be nominated by anyone including counselors, religious leaders, parents, coaches and teachers. If you know a youth that should be recognized, contact Jacob Cox at 303-289-3674 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also download a nomination form online at wwwc3gov.com/recreation.
