The Municipal League of King County awarded Dalia Amin of Lindbergh High School with the Civic Scholar Scholarship at the 49th annual Civic Awards Thursday in Seattle.

The award is given to a high school junior or senior who has demonstrated outstanding civic engagement and volunteer community involvement.

Amin is vice president and bulletin editor of Key Club and is a representative for the Washington State Kurdish community. Amin created Family Care, a group to provide support to newcomers by helping translate documents, search for jobs, manage cases and apply for citizenship. Amin is secretary in the Kurdish Community in the State of Washington (KCSW), where she is the youngest and only woman representative in the country.

The Municipal League created the Civic Awards in 1960 to honor community leadership. The Civic Scholar Award was created in 1994 to reward civic engagement by youth. Recipients receive a partial college scholarship.
