2022 Youth Leadership Award Recipients

The League of Women Voters of Lawrence Township (LWVLT), part of the national and state League of Women Voters organization, is pleased to offer its Annual Youth Leadership Award for 2022. The LWVLT award is intended for graduating high school students who exemplify civic leadership in their community. The Lawrence LWV primarily serves Lawrence, Trenton, and Ewing with voter education and voter services. High school students from these three districts are eligible to be considered.

The LWV of Lawrence sought to include local high schools in the area, in addition to Lawrence High School. The goal is to celebrate the youth leaders in our communities that are stepping up and stepping out under very difficult circumstances.


“We received exceptional submissions that clearly demonstrate there are bright future civic leaders among us. The applications that we received truly were tremendous but there were two that were exceptional this year and we are pleased to present two awards this year. We continue to be uplifted by the work young civic leaders are engaging with in our community. We greatly appreciate the support from the community that enables this award to take place every year.” says LWVLT Co-chair Katharine Schumacher.


The League will present the two awards at the League Annual Meeting on Sunday May 26th. Both students will receive a $1,000 award in recognition of their achievement and dedication to their community.

"Our goal is to celebrate the youth leaders in our communities who are stepping up to lead their peers under very difficult circumstances. The League is here to support, applaud, and promote our next generation of civic leaders. If there are members of the community who want to support this scholarship fund: ANYONE can make a tax-deductible contribution to the LWVLT Youth Leadership Award fund. All proceeds go directly to the students.” For online giving: https://www.lwvlt.org/donate-1
