Youth of the Year
Each year The Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest New Jersey selects a Youth of the Year. The 2023 Youth of the Year is Deyanna Abedrabbo of Wayne.
The National Youth of the Year Program is designed to promote and recognize service to Club, community, and academic performance. Competition begins with each Club selecting a Youth of the Year who then enters the state competition. State winners receive a plaque and college scholarship support. The state winner then enters the regional competition. Each of the five regional winners receives a $10,000 scholarship and enters the national competition held in Washington, DC. The National Youth of the Year receives an additional scholarship, and is installed by the President of the United States.
2023 NJ YOUTH OF THE YEAR RECEPTION AND AWARD CEREMONY is taking place on Wednesday, May 10, 2023 at Montclair State University.
Good luck Deyanna!
