Nominate Someone Today

Do you know a teen or youth group doing something positive in your community? Nominate them for Spirit of Youth RecognitionAward categories include: Role Model, Innovator, Phoenix, Life Saver, Humanitarian, Discovery, Dreamer and Visionary. 


Spirit of Youth knows that there are good things happening in our state and young people are often at the heart of them. For 24 years Spirit of Youth has empowered Alaska’s youth through statewide, media-based youth recognition programs.  


Spirit of Youth relies on community members to let youth know they matter by making a nomination for recognition. Nominations help create opportunities for youth leadership and allow teens to share their voices and get recognized for their contributions.


Of the nominees, eight youth or youth groups and eight runners-up are selected to receive Spirit of Youth Awards including a scholarship. All Alaskan youth ages 12-19 are eligible.


The deadline to nominate youth is December 31.
