Nestle Very Best in Youth Program to Honor Young People for Academic and Community Service Achievements
Deadline: November 20, 2008

The Nestle Very Best in Youth Program, sponsored by Nestlé USA, honors young people (ages 13 to 18) who have excelled in school and who are making their community and the world a better place. The young people, selected from nominations from volunteers, parents, and teachers, will be featured in a special publication and honored at a black-tie ceremony in Los Angeles in July 2009.

To be eligible, applicants must be legal residents of the United States or its territories and be between 13 and 18 years of age. Students will be judged based on the information provided on the entry form (i.e., strong academic record; special contribution to school, church, or community; demonstration of good citizenship or a personal obstacle the youth has overcome).

Judges will select twenty-five outstanding youths to be profiled in a book, which will be published in the summer of 2009. If a winner is unable to attend the awards ceremony, his/her prize will be forfeited and another winner may be selected.

Each winner will also receive a trip with his/her parent or legal guardian to Los Angeles for the Nestlé Very Best In Youth awards ceremony. The trip will include round-trip air travel, hotel accommodations for three nights, and $500 in spending money. In addition, Nestlé will donate $1,000 in the name of each winner to the charity of his or her choice.
