The leaders of tomorrow in civics, politics, spirituality, and the economy will likely be found among the youth compiled for the San Diego County Public Defender Office’s 25 Most Remarkable Teens recognition event.
The Public Defender’s Office is seeking nominations for its Most Remarkable Teens program who have many accomplishments or made worthy contributions to the community. Anyone may nominate a teen through June 30 for consideration in the sixth annual 25 Most Remarkable Teens.
Go to https://www.sandiegocounty.gov/content/sdc/public_defender.html to find the online application which lists 25 categories including activism, civic involvement, commitment to personal excellence and courage to overcome adversity. All San Diego County area youth from 13 to 19 years old are eligible for nomination.
All nominees will receive a certificate of recognition for the honor of being nominated. The 25 teens who are selected for the award will be presented with the award in November and featured on County News Center.
The completed nomination form can be emailed to [email protected] or can be mailed to Grace Liu, San Diego County Public Defender Youth Council, 451 A St., Suite 900, San Diego, CA 92101.
