YOUTH OF THE YEAR & ACE OF THE YEAR PROGRAMS

Local high school students are chosen by their guidance counselors as Youth of the Month winners and for participation in our Youth of the Year program. Similarly our local high schools counselors chose deserving students for our ACE, Accepting the Challenge of Excellence, program. These students complete an application form and write and present essays. The essays are graded and points are tallied to determine the Exchange Club of Speedway’s Youth of the Year and ACE of the Year. Youth of the Month winners receive $100 and a framed award certificate. These winners receive $500 and an engraved plaque to mark their achievement. These students also move on to the Indiana District competition and a chance at a $1000 scholarship and advancement to the National competition. National winners receive a $10,000 scholarship. The Exchange Club of Speedway has been fortunate to support several Indiana District winners and we are working hard on our first National Youth of the Year!
