They might not be straight-A students. They might not be celebrated athletes. But they are kids who make a difference just by being members of the community. Perhaps she's the girl that helps out at the soup kitchen, or he's the boy that works extra hours to rake leaves or shovel snow; or they take time to help a classmate with schoolwork or at recess. The Jerome Optimist Club celebrates these special kids for their efforts every year with the Annual Youth Appreciation Awards.
This year the ceremony will be held on Wednesday, November 5, 2008 at 6:00 p.m. at Summit Elementary in Jerome, Idaho.
Nominations are received from the community; from teachers, parents, and friends. Nominations are due on Wednesday, October 29, 2008. You can nominate someone special in Jerome, Idaho or the surrounding area today by contacting Sheri Mitchell.
