The Mayors and Commissioners of Adams County are asking for nominations for the Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards. Each year, this program recognizes young people in grades 6th-12th, or those who may not be in a school setting but are 20 years of age or younger, who have overcome personal adversity to create a positive change in their own lives or those around them.
