Each spring we honor outside community members and fellow Jaycees with our Community Awards Banquet. Nominations are accepted in several categories including: Outstanding Young Community Leader, Outstanding Young City Servant, Outstanding Young Educator, Outstanding Young Religious Leader, Jaycees Scholarship Winner, First Year Jaycee, and Jaycee of the Year.
Not sure who qualifies for the Jaycee awards? Any active member is eligible for Jaycee of the Year. The rookies who are eligible are Ben McKnight, Samantha Meier, Makenzie Morris, Tara Rednair, Blake Riffel, Kai Dickmann, Justin Jacobs, Nicki Ellis, Kat Broughton, Ryan Kopf, Whitney Wesson, and Andy Swartz.
The evening begins with a cocktail hour and is followed by dinner and the program. New Jaycees and the new Board of Directors are also sworn in.
