Nominations

The St. Timothy Youth Award is a national recognition award given to youth by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry in collaboration with the Life & Family Evangelization Office of the Diocese of Rockford.  It is the highest recognition from the NFCYM for a diocese to confer upon a Junior High or High School youth (ages 13-18) who:

  • Lives as a disciple of Christ, setting a positive example for other youth
  • Witnesses to their faith by exhibiting Catholic morals and integrity
  • Demonstrates Gospel values through service to others
  • Exhibits Christian leadership in parish, school, and/or community settings

Please prayerfully consider nominating one or more deserving young person(s) from your parish/school who fit these criteria.

The cost of the award and certificate is $25.00 per youth. Complete the form below, or download the 2019 Nomination Form and return it with payment to the Life & Family Evangelization Office (P.O. Box 7044, Rockford, IL 61125).

Though the deadline for nominations was April 5, 2019, we will continue to accept nominations while supplies last. Nominations received after this date will be subject to availability. Supplies are limited.

We anticipate distributing the awards and certificates to participating parishes and schools by the first week in May so that they may be conferred upon each recipient before the end of the school year.

Your creativity is appreciated as to how you present this award to the youth in your parish or school. Whether it be an all school assembly, recognition at all Sunday Masses, a profile in the bulletin or school newspaper, please do not pass up this chance to recognize and honor this young person in front of his/her community. The full list of recipients will be published in The Observer at the beginning of June.

The following online submission form is to be completed only by those authorized by their parish or school to do so (priest, principal, teacher, youth minister, DRE/CRE, etc.). If you are not in this position, please contact the appropriate person at your parish or school to talk to them about nominating the person you have in mind.

The cost of the award and certificate is $25.00 per youth. Please submit checks made payable to “LiFE Office” to P.O. Box 7044, Rockford, IL 61125. Payments must be submitted by April 5, 2019.
