Nominees Sought for Youth Service Award

The Westport Youth Commission (WYC) is seeking nominees for the annual James S. Bacharach Service to the Community Award, Human Services Director Barbara Butler announced today.

Since 1989 awards have been given as a tribute to the late James S. Bacharach, founder and past-president of the Youth Adult Council, predecessor of the WYC, which Bacharach and others founded in 1974

“All qualified high school seniors from Westport are eligible for this award,” said Butler. 

“This honor, given to one or more high school seniors from Westport, recognizes their significant community service contributions in our town.

She said that eligible nominations must demonstrate exemplary leadership ability and high standards of community service to Westport.

“Either adults or students may nominate a deserving high school senior for their contributions to our community,” Butler said.

She said that applications will be made available online at  and sent to school counseling offices as well as at Toquet Hall Teen Center, the Westport Public Library and the Department of Human Service at Town Hall.

Each application must include no more that two references or letters of support attesting to the student’s contributions to the town, Butler said.
