Today on Segment 16, the guys talk with Rick from the Boys and Girls Club about the Youth of the Year awards luncheon, happening next week here in Grand Rapids. This is a great thing for the youth of Grand Rapids.

"To become Youth of the Year for Grand Rapids is something that would be pretty special for one of our members to be." Rick said about the awards. "And we're excited to be able to recognize our Youth of the Year next week at our luncheon."

Once someone wins the Grand Rapids Youth of the Year, they move on to a Regional Youth of the Year, and then hopefully State, and then National Youth of the Year, where they can win a $50,000 scholarship! This would be amazing for a Grand Rapids youth!

If you want to get involved in the Boys and Girls Club, it's a great after-school program for kids, where they can get help with homework, play sports, learn from mentors, and enjoy a safe, fun space. This is an amazing thing for kids to be able to take advantage of.

They also serve hot meals to any kid through the door, and Joe is hoping to be able to sneak in soon!
