YES awards honour Oak Bay youth’s achievements

Exceptional Oak Bay youth will be celebrated May 10 at the fourth annual Young Exceptional Star awards banquet at the Oak Bay Recreation Centre’s Sports View Deli Bar and Grill.

The deadline for nominations has been extended another two weeks until Apr. 15 to give more people a chance to nominate talented youth who help others or have overcome hurdles in their lives.

To be eligible for consideration, youth are required to be Oak Bay residents or students between Grade 6 and 10 in public, private or home schools, and excel in community service, arts, citizenship, volunteerism, activism, academics, athleticism or overcoming obstacles.

Certificates will be provided to all nominees, and selected candidates will receive star awards.
