On January 13, we celebrated 20 local youth superheroes at the Give Awards. The event took place at the Brave New Workshop Theatre.  We had 150 people attend from ages 5 to 75 – with a focus on kids!

 

WHAT IS THE GIVE AWARDS?

The Kid Advisory Board planned and hosted the Give Awards ceremony to recognize some of the seriously incredible heroics of kids and teens in our community. Each youth superhero was nominated and chosen based on the positive impact they are making in their community. Nominations took place between August and October 2017, many of the youth were nominated by their peers or teachers. Applications came in from across the greater Twin Cities and Southern Minnesota.

 

WHY DID WE DO IT?

The Kid Advisory Board wanted to recognize and draw attention to kids who are actively making a difference. By highlighting these superheroes, the goal was to empower other kids to join in and help build a generation of awesome youth leaders and action takers. The event was a superhero themed, Oscar like ceremony that recognized all 20 nominees and awarded a select 6 heroes across age groups with a trophy and prizes.
