Since the inception of the Congressional Award program in 1979, only 19 gold medalists have come out of Nevada. Two of them being from this year alone.
As of today, a total of 328 participants from Nevada are currently enrolled in the Congressional Award program. Twenty of those participants have been registered out of the Boys and Girls Club Las Vegas and 81 new participants have already signed up this year.
With these numbers, we hope to inspire and encourage youth to register and participate in this service-oriented, nationally recognized program.
