On Saturday, February 23, 2019, 150 community members gathered at the Mercer Island Boys & Girls Club to honor eight exceptional teens for their accomplishments in leadership, service, academic excellence, and dedication to live a healthy lifestyle.
Judges chose two outstanding teens for awards: Piper S. of the Ballard neighborhood was named King County Youth of the Year, and Adam W. of Sammamish was awarded the Quincy Robertson Service & Leadership Award.
The Quincy Robertson Service & Leadership Award recognizes an individual Youth of the Year finalist who has clearly demonstrated excellence in serving their Club and community as a youth. This award is named after Quincy Robertson, who spent his 39-year career serving youth and his community in countless ways.
Piper S. is the 2019 King County Youth of the Year!

Thank you to our amazing judges!
Our judges read essays and conducted interviews of all the candidates and had the difficult task of selecting two winners from this group of all-stars!
Thank you to our event sponsors!
Youth of the Year was a terrific opportunity to learn about the impact of our Clubs first-hand from long-time members. All of our events rely on support from sponsors, and we're so grateful for sponsor support!
