2017 Healthy Teen Network Awards
Each year, Healthy Teen Network is honored to recognize individuals and organizations for the outstanding work they do to support the lives of young people. We are now accepting award nominations for the following categories:
Outstanding Teen Parent Award
This award is presented to a former teen mother or father who has overcome the obstacles of early parenting to achieve extraordinary personal and/or professional success. Typically, this person is self-sufficient and demonstrates outstanding leadership in achieving community or career goals. Nominees may or may not be current members of Healthy Teen Network.
Youth 360° Innovation Award
How and where youth live, learn, and play matters. We cannot significantly impact health outcomes—and disparities—for all young people without considering the full range of factors that make a critical difference. With the Youth 360° Innovation Award, Healthy Teen Network recognizes emerging innovations and achievements in adolescent sexual and reproductive health promotion that integrate the social determinants of health. Innovation is a critical component of a comprehensive strategy to respond to the dynamic lives of adolescents and young adults. We encourage submissions from organizations and agencies that are committed to a holistic approach and have expanded the scope of their programs and services to address the social determinants of health. The Awards Committee will prioritize submissions that demonstrate promising or innovative approaches to health promotion and are positive and inclusive of the needs of all young people.
Award nominations and all supporting materials are due April 21, 2017. Learn more and submit a nomination using this form.
