CORNWALL, Ontario – On Monday, June 5, CogecoTV’s Cornwall and the Cornwall Optimist Club held the annual Youth Achievement Awards at the Cornwall Legion.
“I think it’s a chance to recognize youth in the community for things they might not get recognized for,” said CogecoTV’s Calvin Killoran.
This is the fourth year of the event and there were 18 awards in total given out to three different grade groups across three different categories.
The categories were Caring is Cool, At my Best and Difference Maker.
“We partnered up with Cogeco and purchased the plaques for the finalists and semi-finalists,” said the Optimist Club’s Ralph Brunton. “Our mandate is “friends of youth” and this fits with us. Tonight’s slogan is “Bringing out the best in youth.””
