The best of the best from Youth on Record’s programs will be honored tonight at the awards ceremony, which will give kids the “rock star treatment,” including hair styling, makeup, gala-ready clothes, limousine rides and paparazzi photos. “We look at every kid individually; we look at how much they’ve improved, how invested they are in their own future and what sort of leadership and support role they’ve taken on with their peers,” says Youth on Record executive director Jami Duffy.
The evening will feature a red-carpet entrance, catered cuisine and live performances from local acts who are involved with Youth on Record’s day-to-day programs, among them Bianca Mikahn, the Soul Pros, Molina Speaks and others. Youth on Record’s Real Rock Star Awards start at 6 p.m. at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax Avenue. Information and tickets, $100, are available at youthonrecord.org.
