The Youth Power and Hope Awards program honors Indiana students in fifth through eighth grades who are leaders in their communities.
Up to five winners are selected to travel to Indianapolis in December every year to attend a special program in their honor. In addition, winners receive $500 and are featured in Indiana Connection.
Past award recipients include student who have initiated a coat drive for the underprivileged, supported patients at Riley Hospital for Children, worked with special needs children, volunteered at a local animal shelter, raised money for the American Cancer Society, and more.
