Staten Island Children's Museum Accepting Nominations For Annual 'Kid Of Achievement' Award

Do you know an outstanding student, friend or neighbor who could be our next "Kid of Achievement?"

The Staten Island Children's Museum's Circle of Friends Awards Luncheon, now in its 28th year, recognizes people and organizations that have significantly contributed to the lives of Staten Island's children. At the Luncheon, the Children's Museum honors a "Kid of Achievement," and is seeking nominations from the public as part of the selection process for 2019.

Who is eligible to be nominated?

Children and teens up to age 17 who are involved in volunteerism, have overcome obstacles and challenges to help others and who display leadership qualities are what the "Kid of Achievement" award is all about.

Last year, the Staten Island Children's Museum honored John W. Lavelle Prep High School student Kristy Autumn Anderson as its "Kid of Achievement." Kristy was recognized for her excellence in her academic studies and community outreach. She dedicates her time in the community throughout the year by volunteering at the Richmond Terrace Therapeutic Garden, helping her neighbors register to vote and working seasonally with Dove's Ministries Community Outreach, which distributes toys to children in need. Kristy also works hard in school and is a straight "A" student.

Submitting "Kid of Achievement" Nominations

The public is invited to send their recommendations to the Children's Museum no later than Friday, October 11. The Nomination Form is available online and should include the nominee's name, contact information and a brief description of their accomplishments.
