JLYA Nomination Process

The partner school districts select qualified young adults each year. Each chooses one winner per year except Bath, Corning, and Hornell School Districts, as they can each choose two Winners. The young adult must be 16-21 years of age, a resident of Steuben County OR currently enrolled in a GST BOCES School, be often overlooked, overcome obstacles and exhibit a desire to succeed.

The selection process in each district will be accomplished by an ad-hoc committee that does not include relatives. It is up to the district to select one individual based on the information supplied on the nomination form. There is no limit to the number of nominations the committee may receive.

The nominee may or may not be enrolled in the listed partner school district, but must meet the above qualifications. If a nominee is a Steuben County young adult who is home-schooled, in college, working, etc then they may be in this category.

If a nominee is qualified, AND a resident of Steuben County, the nomination form should be sent to the closest partner school district. If not possible, please send the form to the Jack Lisi Youth Award e-mail (info@lisiyouthaward.org) or mailed to P.O.
