Nominate an Inspiring Adult in Your Life for the My Guiding Light Award Today!

Are you graduating during the 2015-2016 academic year? Are you a youth in (or formerly in) foster care? Will you be attending the annual Graduation Celebration on June 10, 2016? Do you know an adult who is a Guiding Light in your life? Are they someone that you can turn to for help and who has helped you achieve success? Do you wish there was some way to formally recognize them for their excellence?

GOALL (the SCDSS state youth advisory board) would like to invite you to nominate an important adult in your life for the My Guiding Light award. This award honors an adult who has inspired or guided youth in (or formerly in) foster care. If you believe that someone in your life deserves this recognition, please take the time to make a nomination and let this person know how important they are to you! If your nominee is chosen, you will have the privilege to read your award-winning My Guiding Light Nomination Essay at the 2016 Graduation Celebration on June 10, 2016.

To nominate your Guiding Light, please contact Tessa Adams at for more information. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, May 11, 2016. Tessa is happy to answer any questions you may have about the My Guiding Light award or selection process.

We’re excited to read your submissions and find out more about your Guiding Light.
