Starting this summer, in partnership with the Anchorage School District, we reached out to you, the Anchorage community, to nominate students bettering our community. There were over 75 nominations that came in! We would like to shine a spotlight on these unbelievable students with a showcase and awards event; The Youth Summit Awards.
While there are many events and awards that focus on academics or athletics, this one focuses on good deeds, kindness, community involvement, friendship in the classroom or just kids doing something awesome in their neighborhood, church or school that makes our area a better place.
We will honor 36 awesome Anchorage students total, ranging from elementary, middle and high school — including private, charter and home school! We will honor these students with a red-carpet style ceremony. Each honor recipient will receive an award with his/her name engraved on the front.
The event will take place on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at the University of Alaska Anchorage, and will be split in two parts:
5:30 PM, Lucy Cuddy Hall:
Reception to include kid-friendly food and beverages & activities from our sponsors.
7:00 PM, Wendy Williamson Auditorium:
A short walk from the Lucy Cuddy Hall for our honoree ceremony.
7:00 pm - Welcome
7:10 pm - Magic show by Magician Eric Gilliam
7:30 pm - Awards presentation begins
8:30 pm - Event ends
This is a free event, however the venue does have a capacity. We will ask you to please RSVP. Tickets will be available soon.
This event is a red-carpet-style event that will be fun for the whole family. Dress to impress!
There are several parking lots around the Lucy Cuddy Hall at UAA. We recommend using the West Parking Lot that is on the corner of Lake Otis and Providence Drive. See directions below.
