Each year, coalition leaders throughout the state nominate youth for the Outstanding Youth Prevention Award with an essay highlighting their community service and extra-curricular activities. The 2017 awards were presented on March 8, 2017 as part of the 13th annual Speak Hard Youth Conference in Jefferson City. The award honors youth that have made a commitment and significant contribution to prevent underage drinking and substance use in their communities.
