Jack Lisi Youth Award

Recognition-Incentive for Young Adults

According to the late Angie Lisi, (Jack’s widow) “Jack had compassion, concern, and respect for youth who had problems which hindered their ability to achieve and he felt that often they were not given enough credit. Jack believed that what was needed was someone to care, show support, give assistance, and guidance in order for youngsters to become contributing members of society.”

The award is presented to a maximum of eighteen winners, age 16 through 21, living in Steuben County OR a currently registered student in one of the following school districts; Addison, Alfred-Almond, Arkport, Avoca, Bath, Bradford, Campbell-Savona, Canaseraga, Canisteo-Greenwood, Corning-Painted Post Area, Hammondsport, Hornell City, Jasper-Troupsburg, Prattsburgh, and Wayland-Cohocton. 


This award program targets this often overlooked population and offers incentives to youth who
have shown interest and ambition toward academic or career/employment goals.
 


Award recipients are selected by partner special school committees to receive awards and incentives, dependent upon information expressed on the recommendation forms. These possible awards and incentives are:
  • Grant toward additional education
  • Financial Assistance to College
  • Financial Assistance for college books or other educational material
  • Financial Assistance for work-related materials
Each year the nomination process begins in mid-February and ends mid-March. Any adult (non-family) may nominate a youth, age 16-21, who meets the criteria of being “often overlooked, struggling to be successful, has overcome obstacles and wishes to achieve new goals.”

 
The Jack Lisi Youth Award continues Jack's belief:

"Jack believed that what was needed was someone to care, show support, give assistance, 
and guidance in order for youngsters to become contributing members of society."
