State Societies Donate to Meet President General’s Youth Awards Initiative

Author: Michael Scroggins

Six months into President General Michael J. Tomme’s Youth Awards Initiative seven State Societies have met or exceeded a $1,000 donation to the Council of Youth Awards. At the July SAR Congress PG Tomme challenged each State Society to donate between July 2016 and 1 June 2017 to the Council of Youth Awards. These funds will serve to increase the monetary level of SAR youth awards administered by SAR youth contest committees.

Records show that the Kansas Society leads the donation initiative with $2,250. To date the Florida Society, Georgia Society, Michigan Society, Pennsylvania Society, Texas Society, and Germany Society have met the $1,000 challenge.

Congratulations to each of these State Societies for their support! Between now and 1 June 2017 if each State Society donates a $1,000 or more PG Tomme and First Lady Cilla will donate $10,000 to the Council of Youth Awards. All State Societies meeting this goal will be awarded a Youth Award Streamer at Congress.

Chairman Rudy Byrd will work with Council of Youth Award members, who in addition to providing strong youth committee leadership will determine disbursement levels. Its goal is to equalize the disbursement of funds across all youth award programs. PG Tomme encourages State Societies to participate and join in the movement to increase award levels that reward outstanding youth achievements across the country.

The Council of Youth Awards was formed to achieve greater coordination between SAR youth programs, disseminate pertinent information among programs, share ideas and to enhance overall participation. Click to learn more about the SAR Youth Awards Programs
