Children’s Week Florida Proudly Presents the Inaugural Youth Advocate of the Year Award

Children’s Week Florida Student Volunteers

Advocates at every level and age play an important role in Children’s Week Florida mission of improving the lives of our state’s children, youth, and families. A significant number of these individuals are under the age of 18. These young Floridians embody vision, demonstrate integrity, and continuously encourage advocacy efforts for the issues most important to them.

We humbly look to these influential youth as tomorrow’s leaders and are excited to announce a new award specifically for them. In collaboration with this year’s Advocacy Awards Partner, United Healthcare, Children’s Week Florida will present the inaugural Youth Advocate Award on April 5, 2021

This award will highlight one young person who has initiated or diligently worked on behalf of positive change in support of programs or policies that benefit children, youth, and families in their school, community, or statewide. The recipient of the Children’s Week Florida Youth Advocate Award is one who demonstrates significant commitment to advocacy efforts and exemplifies creativity, leadership, and collaboration.
