Welcome to the Outstanding Young Citizens Program for 2013 - 2014 school year!

For 20 years, Trib Total Media has recognized the achievements of local high school students with the Outstanding Young Citizen Award. Family, friends, teachers and school officials can nominate students based on their exemplary character, academic achievements, leadership and community service.

Due to the overwhelming positive response, and impressive applications we received last year, we are happy to confirm that we will once again be giving away a $5,000 scholarship in each region. As a reminder, because of this addition to the program we still are only accepting nominations for students in 11th-12th grade, and will only be inviting a “Top 50” to each regional banquet.

In an effort to be more “green” we encourage participants to use our web form if they can. Our easy-to-use web-form will automatically generate your nomination information to us via email and send you a confirmation. Digital copies of the nomination form and additional instructions are also available for you to download if you’d prefer. See "FORMS" tab for information on all options.

Please read within for complete details, timelines, and explanations about how this year’s program will work and how you can participate – whether as a student, a school official, or as a member of the community who would like to help us celebrate the accomplished students in your area by nominating your own Outstanding Young Citizen.

Thank you for your interest and participation in our program!
