The St. Joseph County Boys and Girls Club announced its candidates for 2011’s Youth of the Year in a press conference on Wednesday.

The nominees for the award are: Aubrei Hayes, Chloe Teall, Curtis Anderson, Jeannette Rogers, Marquis Taylor and Darius Cristler. All are considered to be great role models for other students at the Club.

"All the kids deserve to be Youth of the Year because they've overcome some incredible challenges in their lives,” said John Morgan, Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of St. Joseph County. “But this is a time when we pick a select few and we highlight them. But they represent all of the kids here at Boys and Girls Club."

The kids will be paired with local business leaders who are competing for their own award.

It all comes down to a fundraising contest to determine who will be the greatest big kid, with the awards being presented at a dinner in April.
