GENESEO – The Livingston County Board of Supervisors and Youth Bureau recently announced the winners of the 2020 Teen Recognition Awards.
These awards are earned by high school teenagers as young as 15 who are committed to community improvement, demonstrate leadership, or are a role model to others because they have overcome personal challenges.
The awards recognized youth in the community who subtly go about making the world around them a little more special through their actions and attitudes. Since 1995, more than 1,800 youth have been recognized.
