Youth Community Service Award Program

The Mayor’s Bluffton Youth Community Service Award Program was introduced by Mayor Lisa Sulka. This program is a venue for the town’s younger residents to invest their time and talent into our community and for them to be recognized for their community contributions.

This award will provide sophomores, juniors and seniors recognition for their volunteerism in the Bluffton community. Those students who have worked to make a difference in our town will be recognized and awarded by Mayor Sulka.
