2014 Youth of the Year Finalists

Pictured left to right: Shantell Mitchell, Michael McCauley, Jessica Santana, Maryah Sullivan, Jacobie Smith, Ashley Williams and Jamecia Mendez.

The Youth of the Year process began locally with selected members from 10 Central Florida Clubs competing for the title of 2014 Kiwanis Club of Orlando Foundation Youth of the Year. Our seven finalists were selected based on their one-on-one interviews, academic achievements, essays, service to their Clubs and overall personality and presentation skills. Soon, we will announce our 2014 Regional Youth of the Year who will represent Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida at the state Youth of the Year competition.
