By BBN Staff: The Belize Youth Awards 2019 were held at the Belize City Civic Center in Belize City on November 29.
The awards ceremony was held under the theme “Youth Mental Health matter; Let’s erase the Stigma.”
Outstanding Belizean youth were honored for their contributions to Belize and Belize High School walked away with the award for Outstanding Student Government.
A statement from the Department of Youth Services noted that student council has undertaken the coordination of their school’s annual Spelling Bee, Math Olympiad, Mad City Money Day, Life Skills Day, Cultural Day and Career Day.
These activities directly provide for out-of-classroom development and growth of the student body.
The student council also coordinates community-based activities such as the Annual Color Run, Annual Light the Night Walk, Sleep it Out for the Homeless, and all year round coastlines cleanup and awareness, in conjunction with Oceana.
Belize High School also organizes the annual shoe drive to assist those less fortunate.
“The Belize High School Student Council has been doing their part, not only for their school but for their community and fellow peers! It is with this in mind that we highlight them as this year’s Outstanding Student Government,” the DYS stated.
Congratulations to Belize High School!
