Boomerang Youth Recognition Award
The Boomerang Youth Recognition Award is a district-wide monthly program which recognizes and honors youth in our community for exemplifying and living by one of the chosen Developmental Assets® for the school year.
Each year, more than 800 elementary, middle, and high school students from Central Bucks School District are nominated for the Boomerang Award. District winners serve as a model to all students in the district, receive school recognition, and are announced in the Bucks County Herald and the Backpack Newsflash, a monthly publication of CB Cares EF that is distributed to all CBSD children.
