17th Annual Cesar E. Chavez Community Awards, Watsonville, Thursday, 28. March 2019

“Students must have initiative; they should not be mere imitators. They must learn to think and act for themselves and be free” 
-Cesar E. Chavez
The Cesar E. Chavez Community Awards recognizes young people (ages 22 and under), adults role models, schools, youth serving organizations and businesses who support and foster youth leadership in the community. This award honors individuals and organizations who intentionally engage youth in positive-prosocial activities that provide opportunities for young people to foster and develop new skills and knowledge that empower them to help others and contribute to their community.

One award will be given in each category:

Young Person (Age 22 or under)

***** Role Model


Youth Serving organization


The evening will include a welcome by Mayor Francisco Estrada and an inspiring keynote address. The evening will culminate with dinner and the presentation of awards. This year’s event theme is “Teach Someone,” one of the ten values recognized by Cesar Chavez Service Clubs. This is the value of giving someone the ability to help and provide for themselves, rather than giving those gifts and donations.
