2018 Young Men of the Year Awards

This year DeSoto ISD will celebrate the Young Men of the Year at DeSoto High School. Only young men in grades 9-12 who attend DeSoto High School are eligible for the Young Men of the Year awards. We will also celebrate the up-and-coming young men with a Rising Star Award recipient from each middle school, but those individuals will be selected by the campus.

All recipients will be announced at the 2018 Male Leadership Symposium on Saturday, April 21 at DeSoto HS. An individual may be nominated by another person or nominate themselves. Each entry must be submitted in one of the six (6) categories, but an individual can be nominated in more that one category (just submit another nomination). The committee will review all submissions and select a winner in each category, AND select the Young Man of the Year overall winner from the entries submitted.
