The Hampton Roads Young Achiever program is designed to encourage and recognize young people who exhibit excellent character, community and school involvement, wise use of leisure time and a commitment to achieve their personal best.
Each week, a panel of judges selects a student who has been nominated for their outstanding character and effort. We then interview the student and produce a one-minute segment profiling their achievements. This weekly profile airs Sunday during WAVY News 10 Sunrise and WAVY News 10 at Six.
By recognizing students for their hard work, motivation and responsibility, we hope to propel them on to better things. Everyone likes to be recognized and rewarded for their achievements, and sometimes this recognition can inspire students to set and attain even higher goals.
Students in grades 8 through 12 are eligible. We feature students from all over Hampton Roads, the Eastern Shore, and Northeast North Carolina. Since its inception, Hampton Roads Young Achievers has honored over 500 students.
