Do you know of a Native youth who deserves to be recognized for their outstanding efforts and achievements? UNITY is now accepting applications for its 2020 UNITY 25 Under 25 Native Youth Leadership Awards!

Please consider nominating a deserving youth for the 2020 UNITY 25 Under 25 Native Youth Leadership Awards! The program is designed to celebrate the achievements of Native American and Alaskan Native youth ages 14 to 24 who embody UNITY’s core mission and exude living a balanced life developing their spiritual, mental, physical and social well-being.

UNITY is now accepting applications for its 4th class of “25 Under 25 Native Youth Leadership Awards,” a youth leadership recognition program. Honorees will be recognized at a ceremony during the National UNITY Conference, which takes place July 2020 in Washington, DC. In addition to being recognized and receiving a beaded medallion, each awardee will receive special training by UNITY during a nine-month period that is designed to build on their individual achievements and promote community service.

The 25 Under 25 Native Youth Leadership Awards has been made possible in past years thanks to a grant from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. The awards program began in 2014 and is awarded every other year.
