Youth Awareness Scholarship Program

For the past 30 years, Moose Lodges and Chapters have organized high school students into highly effective speakers with the goal of educating preschool and elementary school-aged children on a variety of topics, including drug and alcohol abuse, child abuse, “stranger danger”, bullying and peer pressure, and healthy habits and nutrition.

Students enrolled into the program present Moose Kids Talks to 4 to 9 year old children in their communities, then submit their presentations to be judged by high school officials for a chance to become a Delegate at the Moose International Student Congress held in April of each year.

The Delegate's Moose Kids Talks are then voted on by each student at the Congress and the top 5 winning presentations are awarded scholarship money ranging from $2,000-$12,000.

The Virginia Moose Association's Youth Awareness Program has been successful over the years and has proudly produced top 5 winners.

2021 Moose Youth Awareness Scholarship Winners

The 2021 Youth Awareness Congress was held in Myrtle Beach, SC, April 22 – 26, 2021. The

North Carolina and South Carolina Moose Associations volunteered and hosted 38 students on

site and 3 students participated virtual as they had travel restrictions. The students enjoyed the

beach as well as prepared their presentations for the Congress on Saturday. We thank all of the

volunteers for serving as chaperones and the Carolina’s for making the Congress successful.

We also thank the Moose Legionnaires for raising the funds for the scholarships. This could not

and would not be successful without their hard work.
