Off-Topic: Nominate a Minnesota community leader

Jim Tincher Jim Tincher 01/17/2014

As a high school sophomore, I attended the HOBY conference. HOBY is an international organization that develops leadership in high school students. In Minnesota, youth from the last six years have provided over 26,000 hours of service back to their communities!

We host an annual Cheers Dinner to recognize not just our youth, but also those in the greater community who truly make a difference. We are looking for nominations in the following categories:

  • HOBY Outstanding Youth Award:  Awarded to an outstanding Minnesota youth, 13 to 18 years old, who has a consistent track record of volunteerism and clearly demonstrates a sense of social responsibility. The recipient does not need to be a HOBY alumnus.
  • HOBY Outstanding Community Leadership Award: Awarded to an adult who makes a difference in the lives of youth, with a focus on developing leadership and integrity in children and young people. The nominee must be 18 years of age or older, but does not need to be a HOBY alumnus.
  • Outstanding HOBY Alumnus Award: An award given to a HOBY alumnus who continues to give back to the community. This person must be a HOBY alumnus, but does not need to be an alumnus of the Minnesota program.

You can view more in the HOBY Cheers Dinner Nomination Flyer, or go to to nominate somebody today!
