Banquet honors youth of the CSRA

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Several youth in the CSRA were honored at the annual Boys and Girls Club Youth of the Year dinner on Thursday evening.

Twelve kids and their families were invited to a special awards banquet highlighting their academic achievements, leadership skills and community involvement.

Each of the youth represented their local Boys and Girls Club branch and one winner will compete to represent the CSRA in a statewide.

"This is one of the most popular programs in Boys and Girls Club," said Gary Winferry, the operations manager for Boys and Girls Club of the CSRA. "We really push this and promote this because you're developing leaders for tomorrow and right now these kids get an opportunity to compete locally and they go on to compete with them and go on the compete nationally."

While only one winner will advanced to the state competition, each honoree will receive a $5,000 scholarship.
