The Democratic Ideals Award for Outstanding Youth recognizes two local graduating seniors for civic mindedness and engagement, and future civic aspirations. The award honors students who have promoted democratic ideals in their communities during their tenure at high school. Democratic ideals include justice, equity and fairness, inclusiveness, respect for human dignity and rights, generosity, empathy, compassion and civility. The award is $500 each. Applicants must attend either San Lorenzo Valley High School or Scotts Valley High School.
The application deadline is March 29, 2021.
During the challenges of COVID-19, we awarded our 2020 recipients virtually; see the video below.
