There has never been a better time in our nation’s history to recognize and celebrate the virtues, valor and vision of the extraordinary young people that we are privileged to serve in our Catholic schools. Through their faith, leadership and service to others, they set the standards of personal conduct and public service by which the rest of us must measure ourselves.
NCEA is proud to initiate the NCEA Youth Virtues, Valor and Vision Awards Program that will formally recognize extraordinary young people in our Catholic schools who through their selfless service, determination, innovation and ideals are changing the world.
The 2017 Call for Nominations is now open. Every NCEA member Catholic school, both elementary and secondary, is eligible to nominate one student, who through personal witness and initiative, in service learning programs or community outreach, has become a hero to those who have been touched and nourished by his or her work or initiative. Completed nomination forms for the NCEA Youth Virtues, Valor and Vision Awards must be received no later than October 15, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

This NCEA program is sponsored through the generosity and support of Cross Catholic Outreach who believes in and celebrates the young people in our Catholic schools who are making a profound difference even at a young age to a myriad of underserved constituencies.
