Nominations for the National Service to Youth Award may be made by any individual, Boys & Girls Club or Area Council. Click below to submit nominations for review. 


There is no longer a set fee for nominations. You will receive a link to print your certificate online after submitting your nomination, and you can order your pin and medallion from the BGCA estore. Pins are different prices depending on the years of service. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.


It is recommended that National Service to Youth Awards be presented at Area Council dinners, annual meetings or on special occasions planned for this purpose. The number of National Service Recognition Awards to be presented at any given function should be carefully reviewed by each Boys & Girls Club organization in order to maintain the dignity of each award.
