American Youth Character Awards

The Huntington Beach Children’s Needs Task Force, together with the City of Huntington Beach, is sponsoring our 17thannual American Youth Character Awards program to honor young people who are the real heroes and proper role models for their generation.

Within your organization, there may be dozens of young people who are deserving of recognition. Anyone that is not an immediate family member can nominate a praiseworthy individual by completing the Youth Nomination Form and attaching a brief statement describing the facts that support the nominee as an example of good character. Nominees must be in grades 3-12 and reside in the City of Huntington Beach. Only individual nominations are accepted. Group nominations are not eligible. The back of the nomination form provides the criteria that will be used to evaluate the submissions. Please feel free to make as many copies of this information as you would like and distribute this information to any potential nominators!

Children's Needs Task Force

The Children's Needs Task Force (CNTF) believes that the future of our city depends on how we view our children. The community must provide an environment where children can grow up and become healthy mature adults who feel themselves to be a part of the community. Local leaders must work with schools, outside agencies, the police, and the young people of our community to effectively identify the needs of children, and to develop an approach with which to meet these needs. The Task Force is available to provide their recommendations to the City Council concerning appropriate methods to meet the needs of children in Huntington Beach.

The CNTF meets the fourth Thursday every other month at 4:00 pm in Room B-8, Lower-Level.
