Boomerang Youth Recognition Award
“As Boomerang Coordinator … I’ve seen first hand how the Boomerang Award makes kids shine.” Lisa Mancini, Tamanend Middle School
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. (Read the 2018-19 list.)
Each year, more than 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, 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 the families of all CBSD students.
Know a student that lives by one of this year’s monthly assets? You don’t have to work at CBSD to nominate a student. Nominate a deserving student and submit the nomination to the student’s school’s Boomerang coordinator.
