The Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Award (ACMCYA) is a program that recognizes youth in grades 6-12 who have overcome personal adversity to create positive change in their lives and communities. This program provides businesses, the community, and civic leaders an opportunity to actively demonstrate their support for the young people in all of our communities and recognize them for their accomplishments.

ACMCYA focuses on teenagers who have triumphed over great odds and serve as inspirations and role models for their peers. These youth have overcome a variety of hardships and are ready to soar.  The program helps those who need our support to believe in themselves and gain the recognition they deserve in the eyes of their family and their community. For more information please contact Abby Martinez. Nominations will be due in January.
