Young Achievers are recognized annually by the International Leadership Network, a nonprofit organization. Its mission is to develop and implement programs that empower young people to succeed.  

Young Achievers are successful achievers and leaders who are appointed or elected, positive role models, good citizens in their schools and communities and competent scholars. To quality, students must submit a nomination form, resume and letter from their nominator. Students are nominated to be in the Young Achievers Program during their 4th and 7th grade terms.

The Lincoln Trail Young Achievers Program is sponsored locally by the Lincoln Trail Youth Leadership Council, Inc.

The most current Young Achievers Program display will be at the Towne Mall in January and February 2014. For more information, visit www.lincolntrail.org or www.mccoystudio.com or call 270-769-5022.
