Boys & Girls Clubs to announce State Youth of the Year tonight


The Boys & Girls Clubs of Wisconsin will announce its 2022 Youth of the Year winner on Tuesday night in an event featuring Green Bay Packer football star Aaron Jones, Milwaukee Bucks legend Sidney Moncrief, Emmy Award winner Charlie Berens, and an all-star cast of club alumni. The Youth of the Year is the highest honor given to a club member.

The top five finalists will speak at the awards ceremony and Bally Sports Wisconsin – in conjunction with the Packers, Brewers and Bucks – will award $20,000 in scholarships to all winners. The celebration will stream over Facebook Live and can be seen here.  

Each year Wisconsin clubs from 161 sites across 59 cities select representatives to compete at the local level, with winners advancing to state, regional and national competition. Each competing club member has to meet academic and community service requirements, write essays, submit letters of endorsement and prepare a three-minute speech.

Wisconsin clubs serve over 140,000 youth and provide over 2.1 million meals and snacks each year at no cost.
