The Youth Hall of Fame, now in its 28th year, is an initiative of the Greece Regional Chamber of Commerce with support from regional businesses, schools, and government. The Presenting Sponsor of the 2018 Youth Hall of Fame is former Committee Chair and current Committee Member Ralph DeStephano, owner of Buckman’s Plaza. Inductees are chosen annually by the Chamber’s Youth Hall of Fame Committee, currently chaired by Rhonda Ball of The Summit Federal Credit Union and comprised of Greece Regional Chamber Business Members, all of whom serve as volunteers. The Committee reviews nominations of area 11th and 12th grade students who have shown leadership and community spirit through exceptional personal, volunteer, scholastic, and workforce achievement.

Candidates for the award are nominated by high school teachers, counselors and administrators, area businesses, community youth agencies, service organizations or area residents. To be considered for the Youth Hall of Fame, each applicant needs to attend a Greece-area public, private or parochial school and demonstrate how he or she is an exceptional volunteer or employee, has served the community or peers, has coped with a life challenge or has overcome personal tragedy.
