National Recognition For Youth

Description

The St. Timothy award, the highest recognition from the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry, is presented to young men or women for outstanding leadership and service to their church and community. 

 

Eligibility

Each parish is invited to choose an outstanding youth in junior high or high school to receive the St. Timothy Award.   

If a parish experiences difficulty distinguishing between the contributions of two youth, please contact Kenny Wodzanowski to discuss other options. The parish may also consider using the parish-level award, 'Discipleship', offered by The National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry to honor youth who do not quite meet the qualifications for the national award.

Visit for more information.

 

Criteria

In choosing a candidate, please consider the following criteria, and incorporate these criteria in the comments on the award form:

  • Lives as a disciple of Christ, setting a positive example for other youth.
  • Witnesses to their faith by exhibiting Catholic morals and integrity.
  • Demonstrates Gospel values through service to others.
  • Exhibits Christian leadership in parish, school, and/or community settings.
