The Compass - - KEYIN COLLEGE -

The Avalon Achieve­ment Com­pe­ti­tion was founded to en­cour­age the re­gions youth to ex­cel in the ar­eas of self en­rich­ment by pro­vid­ing post-sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tional schol­ar­ships/unique learn­ing & life op­por­tu­ni­ties as well as, com­mu­nity en­rich­ment through re­ward­ing ded­i­cated vol­un­teerism, char­i­ta­ble con­nec­tion, and youth ac­tivism. We be­lieve that in­volve­ment in vol­un­teer, com­mu­nity and char­i­ta­ble ser­vices should be both en­cour­aged and rewarded.

We also be­lieve that in or­der to be­come a strong leader, a re­gional rep­re­sen­ta­tive must be com­mit­ted to their goals for fu­ture, be­com­ing strong, di­versely ex­pe­ri­enced in­di­vid­u­als. A Re­gional rep­re­sen­ta­tive must chal­lenge them­selves aca­dem­i­cally, they must prac­tice and pro­mote healthy liv­ing, and they must ra­di­ate con­fi­dence, and pos­i­tive self-im­age. Avalon Achieve­ment Rep­re­sen­ta­tives must also pos­sess a strong de­sire to be a good ex­am­ple for oth­ers; and in the spirit of com­pe­ti­tion, they must be gra­cious.

The Avalon Achieve­ment Com­pe­ti­tion pro­vides a fo­rum for youth ages 8 - 17 to chal­lenge them­selves to achieve ex­cel­lence in all life ex­pe­ri­ences and to re­ward them for their ef­forts.
