UPDATE: Congratulations to 14-year-old Cheyenne Anderson of Smithton, winner of the 2013 Youth of the Year Award.  Cheyenne will move on to the state competition held in Jefferson City in early April.

Fifteen Boys & Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri members will compete for the local 2013 Youth of the Year Title on Jan. 24 at 6 p.m. at the Fox Theater in Sedalia, Mo.

The national winner receives an additional scholarship up to $50,000 from the Rick and Susan Goings Foundation.
