The Nestlé Very Best In Youth program was created to spotlight the best in youth leadership. The program identifies teens whose efforts are making a profound impact in lives other than his or her own.
Nestlé aims to help young people, who want to make a difference, realize their dreams by donating $1,000 in the name of each winner to the charity of his or her choice. The winners also will have profiles published in a book, which will be available in 2011.
Nestlé also will awards the winners a trip for them and a parent or guardian to Los Angeles, California for the Nestlé Very Best In Youth awards ceremony. Each contestant will receive a certificate of achievement from Nestlé and samples of Nestlé products.
