Global country artist Kane Brown has been named the recipient of The 2022 Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Champion of Youth Award. Brown, a devoted supporter of the organization, will be honored on Oct. 13 at The 75th National Youth of the Year ceremony in Los Angeles.
In addition to the Champion of Youth Award, the annual event honors teens recognized on the local, state and regional levels, where one finalist will take home the national title. The ceremony is set to take place at the Beverly Hilton hotel where Entertainment Tonight’s Nischelle Turner will host and name the 2022 National Youth of the Year.
“For 75 years, we’ve recognized courageous young people who establish themselves as leaders and changemakers, not only in their local communities, but all across the nation,” says President and CEO Jim Clark. “This year, we’re thrilled to move the celebration to Los Angeles, honoring our National Youth of the Year with many trusted youth advocates and national leaders.”
Since 1947, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Youth of the Year program has recognized young individuals who make an impact in their communities, and possess outstanding leadership skills, academic excellence and a healthy lifestyle. Past recipients of the Champion of Youth Award include LeBron James, Jennifer Lopez and Mario Lopez..
