Know a local young person who goes above and beyond in service to the community? The Orion Area Youth Assistance (OAYA) is accepting nominations for its 18th annual Youth Recognition Awards, scheduled for April 28 in the Lake Orion High School Performing Arts Center.

The awards, said Tom Swieboda, youth assistance caseworker, pay special tribute to outstanding youth in the community who have volunteered their time in the past year.

Volunteer acts may include, but are not limited to, personal acts of heroism, hospital/ nursing home service, ecology/ beautification activities, Special Olympics, mentor/ tutoring, assisting senior citizens and drug/alcohol prevention.

Nominees are selected on the basis of voluntary services; paid services and high school community service requirements are not eligible.

Nominations must be received by March 18. For nomination forms or more information, contact Tom Swieboda by phone at 248-693-6878 or email tswieboda@lakeorion.k12.mi.us.
