The eleventh annual African-American Youth Achievement Awards program will be held on Feb. 27 at Evanston Township High School, 1600 Dodge Ave. The reception will begin at 6 p.m. in the Terrace Room, followed by the awards ceremony at 7 p.m. in the Upstairs Theater. The ceremony will pay tribute to African-American youth who, on a daily basis, are keeping the visions and legacy of African-American pathfinders and pioneers alive by excelling in the classroom and/or in extracurricular activities. The observance is a Black History Month initiative sponsored by First Bank and Trust of Evanston, Family Focus, Northwestern University and the NAACP, in conjunction with Evanston-Skokie School District 65 and Evanston Township High School.
