Northwest Exchange National Recognition - Deanna Smith Named Youth of the Year

The Youth of the Month program recognizes several of our areas most outstanding youth who are high school juniors.

Seven different high schools in our district participate in this program.  They include: Northwest, Colerain, North College Hill, Mt. Healthy, LaSalle, Mercy McAuley and Roger Bacon.  Monthly winners are selected throughout the school year by an interview team from the Northwest Exchange Club.

The selection is based on academics, leadership, school activities and community service.

At the conclusion of the school year, all the winners return for our Youth of the Year Banquet.  At the banquet each student presents an essay on a topic furnished by the National Exchange Club.  Additional criteria include school activities, grades and community involvement.  At the conclusion of the banquet, a Youth of the Year is selected.

The winner is presented  with a personalized plaque and a $500 CASH prize.  In addition, the winner will have an opportunity to compete as a senior for additional scholarship awards at the district, state and national levels.


This year's Youth of the Year winner is our very own Deanna Smith. Deanna also won Youth of the Month in March.
