The Westwood Rotary and Westwood Youth & Family Services Department (WY&FS) are seeking the public’s help to identify young people in our community that have demonstrated a commitment to helping others. We would like to celebrate these individuals by honoring them with the R.A.Y (Recognize-A-Youth) award. Recipients will have distinguished themselves through their initiative and commitment to community service and have demonstrated an ethic of caring for others that is essential to the health of our community. Past recipients have been honored for acts of kindness both large and small such as, tutoring an elementary school neighbor, raking leaves for a senior citizen, creating a social media campaign to end stereotypes, designing and selling bracelets to fundraise for a non-profit, organizing a clothing collection drive and donating birthday presents to less fortunate children.
This spring, members of the Westwood Rotary will select the outstanding young people to be recognized from the pool of nominees. Recipients will be honored at a reception, receive a certificate of appreciation and a small gift, courtesy of the Westwood Rotary.
The deadline for nominations is March 31, 2023. For more information and to complete an online nomination form please visit our website at www.townhall.westwood.ma.us/departments/youth-family-services Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. or call WY&FS at 781-320-1006 with any questions.
