Kawartha Lakes Youth Awards

Nominations are now open for the 2024 Youth Awards. The location and date of the ceremony are to be announced!

Click here to access the nomination form. 

The annual Kawartha Lakes Youth Awards was created by the BGC Kawarthas Foundation to shine a spotlight on youth in our community between the ages of 12 and 24. 

We receive nominations from a variety of sources throughout the community, all highlighting extraordinary youth. Their stories are inspiring and reinforce that the future of our community is in excellent hands.

We offer a total of eight awards, and two of each are rewarded, to a youth between the ages of 12-17, and a youth between the ages of 18-24.

If you fill out the form online, save it, and then send it, alongside a photo of the nominee, to nominations@bgckawarthas.com
