Together with the Village of Maryville Mayor and Board of Trustees, the Maryville Community Improvement Board (MCIB) is sponsoring the 5th annual Young Citizens of the Year Award for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. The purpose of this award is to recognize outstanding citizenship from the youth in our community, and to encourage students to take an active role in their communities, schools, and churches.
To ensure a successful program, we are asking for your assistance in promoting this award throughout your schools and churches. Please help us by informing teachers and administrators about the award and encouraging them to nominate candidates via the attached nomination form. Any student in Grades K-12 who resides or attends church or school in Maryville is eligible. There will be three age categories: Kindergarten through Grade 4, Grades 5-8, and Grades 9-12.
Nomination forms are due by February 25, 2021 to MaryvilleCIB@gmail.com. The nominations will be reviewed by the MCIB, and winners will be announced in March 2021. Depending on the quantity and quality of submissions, multiple awards may be given for each age group. Award winners and their parents will be invited to an April 2021 Village Board Meeting, and to the Mayor’s Prayer Dinner in May 2021, where they will be recognized. Additionally, names of awardees will be displayed on a plaque in the Village Hall.
We are excited for the opportunity to recognize the outstanding youth of Maryville, and we thank you in advance for your support of this program.
