Local Youth Overcome Adversity

Congratulations to the 24 Northglenn nominees for the Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards (ACMCYA)! 

This program honors individuals ages 13 to 19 who have overcome great adversity in their lives. Now, they are successful and productive students and members of the community. Nominees come from teachers and guidance counselors from local schools.

Normally, City Council would have celebrated the Northglenn nominees during a special ceremony, but this was not possible due to social distancing restrictions.
