What Comes Around, Goes Around


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, over 1,000 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 and receive school recognition and are announced in the Bucks County Herald newspaper and The Backpack Newsflash, a monthly publication of CB Cares EF  which reaches 20,000 school children and their families.

Check out the 2018- 2019 list of Developmental Assets here  Developmental Assets 18-19 web

Know a student that lives by one of this year’s monthly assets ?  Anyone can nominate a student – parent, teacher, peer, neighbor, coach, scout leader … Nominate a deserving student and submit the nomination to your school Boomerang Coordinator.

“My position as Boomerang Coordinator has helped me grow as a leader.  I’ve seen first hand how the Boomerang Award makes kids shine.”   – Lisa Mancini, Tamanend Middle School
