2018 Good Citizenship Award
The Youth Work Foundation of The Union League of Philadelphia is celebrating their 72nd year in 2018. One of the roles of the Youth Work Foundation is the annual Union League Good Citizenship Award.
Washington Crossing Council has been a long standing agency partner with The Union League and we look forward to a strong group of nominees to attend the Good Citizen Day on May 16, 2018.
We ask that you consider nominating a youth member in your unit for the 2018 Good Citizenship Award.
The ideal candidate for the Good Citizenship Award:
- is a junior in high school (requirement)
- is a citizen of the United States (requirement)
- demonstrates hard work and fair play
- is a registered member of Washington Crossing Council
- has personal attributes of honesty, courage, tolerance, curiosity, and loyalty

In order to receive the Good Citizenship Award, nominees are expected to attend Good Citizen Day on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. The morning provides breakfast and ice breakers for students and will feature activities to explore, learn, and discuss the U.S. Constitution, and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. After lunch at the Union League, the afternoon will be spent off-site at Philadelphia's City Hall, to delve further into parts of the United States Government and the incorporation of these into our local operations. An awards banquet will be held back at the Union League, and the day will end at 8:30pm.
