Rotary members recognize three Renton School District high school students each month as Youth of the Month.
After being selected by counselors at each of the district’s three comprehensive high schools, a selection committee of Rotary members review applications and interview students to identify those who will be selected as Youth of the Month.
The award is given to students who possess leadership abilities, maintain a good grade point average, participate in school activities and volunteer in their community.
