U-ROC (Richmond Outstanding Community) Youth Awards

What are the U-ROC Awards?
Every year during BC Youth Week (May 1-7) the City of Richmond hosts the U-ROC (Richmond Outstanding Community) Youth Awards to celebrate the achievement and dedication of outstanding Youth and  Asset Champions within the Richmond community.

The City asks for professionals and community members working with youth, who know of an Outstanding Youth or Asset Champion to nominate them for an award. Please take the time to consider those who go above and beyond the day to day expectations and activities required of them, and shine in their own special way.

Category Descriptions

Outstanding Youth
