The Youth Award is awarded to youth who are deaf, deafblind, and hard of hearing who have demonstrated strong leadership skills. They are also engaged in the community and inspire their peers to do the same.

[Jaemi Hagen appears onscreen and begins to sign.]

Jaemi: Michael Angara was nominated for the Youth Award because of his academic success, history of overcoming adversity, outstanding leadership, advocacy, and how much Michael has given back to the community. For example, he has served over 400 hours tutoring with distance learning classes, co-teaching faith classes, and serving as a Youth Commissioner for Burnsville Parks and Natural Resources Commission.

[Michael’s teacher comes onscreen and begins to voice. (She smiles and claps.)]

Teacher: So, Michael, I nominated you for this award and you are being honored because of your academic success.

[Michael and his mother look surprised.]

Michael: Really?

[Video switches to teacher.]

Teacher: Yes, I’m so excited for you.

[Video switches back to Michael and his mother.]

Michael: Thank you so much.

[Video switches to teacher.]

Teacher: You’re welcome.

[Video returns to Michael and his mother.]

Michael’s mother: I can’t thank enough all the teachers of deaf and hard of hearing, the 917. They’re always there when we need it. It’s really very, I’m so grateful for all the help. I can’t thank you enough.

[Video returns to the teacher, who is smiling and nodding.]
