Nebraska Hands & Voices
Guide By Your Side
The Rising Stars Award was created in 2018 by Guide By Your Side Program Coordinator Shelli Janning. Shelli was inspired by her own daughter's strong self-advocacy and leadership skills, and felt that other D/HH youth who stand out as positive role models in their communities and among their peers deserved recognition.
The Rising Star receives a certificate of recognition, a $15 gift card, a shout out on the Nebraska Hands & Voices Facebook page, and bragging rights for the month.
