Youth Nominees Sought

July 6, 2017

The Hayward City Council proudly announces formation of the Hayward Youth Achievement Hall of Fame and first annual Youth Achievement Hall of Fame awards.

The awards will recognize Hayward youth for outstanding achievement in seven categories—academics, athletics, arts, community service, heroism, innovation and leadership.

Young people age five to 19 years old can be nominated for the Hall of Fame.  Nominees must live or attend school in Hayward, California.  Nominations are accepted from any adult parent, teacher, coach, mentor, youth leader, family member, neighbor, friend or other sponsoring adult who wishes to recognize a Hayward youth for outstanding achievement.

Awards will be announced in October 2017.  Hall of Fame awardees will be recognized on local television in a special ceremony at City Hall on Nov. 14, 2017.

The deadline for nominations is July 31.  For more information and to find complete rules, guidelines and award-category descriptions visit the Council Youth Achievement Hall of Fame website or call (510) 881-7956.
