GENESEO, N.Y., Mar. 24, 2023 – The Livingston County Youth Board is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2023 Teen Recognition Award, which recognizes individuals from throughout the County based on community involvement, leadership and being a positive influence on others while overcoming a challenge.
Now in its 28th year, the theme of this year’s celebration is: Livingston County Youth Make Magic Happen. In all, 89 individuals will be honored representing towns from across the County while Livonia’s Victoria Camara will serve as the event’s keynote speaker after having been recognized with the same award in 2012 and again in 2014.
“Livingston County is proud to recognize these individuals for their integrity, positive attitude, civic accomplishments and overall service to their communities,” said David L. LeFeber, Chair of the Livingston County Board of Supervisors. “Their hard work and exemplary character is inspiring and we look forward to celebrating them.”
Individuals are nominated by community members, educators, school administrators, coaches, boy scout leaders, 4H, fire departments and other community-based organizations.
“I’d like to thank the Board of Supervisors for their continued support of this event,” added Ryan Snyder, Director of the Office of Workforce Development. “The Teen Recognition Award is an opportunity for the County to give its thanks to individuals who have been civically engaged within our communities. I’m grateful to all those who have helped to make this event a success year-in and year-out.”
A celebration of their accomplishments will take place at a banquet on Wednesday, April 26th at Willow Creek Venue in Lakeville.
