Who Can Apply

The Youth of the Blue Ridge Contest was created to highlight those special individuals, ages 12-18, who have done extraordinary things in their lives.  This could range from bettering their community, completed high achieving academics, or overcoming unique moments in their lives. No amount of achievement is too big or too small to be considered. These outstanding teenagers can be nominated through others or through yourself. Remember, nobody tells your story quite as good as you do.


Contest Dates and Prizes

Of course, a contest isn’t a contest without winners and prizes. The nominations submitted will be read by a board of members who will then help pick the winner. Our board consists of three young people and four adults, allotting for various perspectives in the decision making process.
