Colorado Springs is looking for a few good teens. The deadline to nominate teenagers for the 2010-2011 Mayor's 100 Teens has been extended until April 9.
Since 1998, the Mayor's 100 Teens has recognized teenagers who demonstrate a commitment to volunteerism, leadership, and academic success and who have overcome adversity or achieved something significant. The program was developed to commend local teens for successes that don't typically receive recognition.
"Mayor's 100 Teens not only gives these teens the recognition they deserve, but it gives them opportunities to get involved in community service projects and to meet other successful teens in the Pikes Peak Region," said Mayor Lionel Rivera.
The Mayor's 100 Teens are selected by a panel of community judges in April and are recognized in a public celebration in September. Throughout the year, teens are invited to attend special events with the mayor, serve on various committees and participate in community service activities.
Students in the 9th, 10th or 11th grade may be nominated. The deadline is April 9, 2010. Make a nomination online, or call 385-6954.
