Attention, Youth Organizations!

You Could Win $500 in the PSATS Youth Awards Contest

Has your youth organization completed a community service project in our township? For example, has your Scout troop helped clean up a township park or your high school group developed an environmental program for residents? Has your 4-H club held an event for children or adults or your church youth group volunteered to help elderly residents?

Consider entering your community service project in the annual Youth Awards Contest of the Pa. State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS). This program recognizes the contributions youth groups make to improve the quality of life in Pennsylvania’s townships of the second class. Four winners will each receive $500 and a framed certificate, along with coverage in the Pennsylvania Township News and their local newspapers.

To be eligible, your project must have been undertaken or continued between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019, and must have benefited our township and/or its residents.

To download a PDF of the official guidelines and entry form, go to and click on the PSATS Youth Awards button. Bring your completed form to the township office for the board of supervisors chairman to sign, and we’ll help you submit it to the county association of township officials by the July 1 deadline.
