Please join the Town of Greece and the Greece Youth Board as we introduce the second annual recipient of the Jerry J. Helfer Youth Engagement Award Scholarship. This scholarship is sponsored by the Town in honor of the late Jerry J. Helfer. Jerry Helfer was a man of exceptional character and virtue who always exhibited kindness to anyone he encountered. His untimely passing two years ago led the Town of Greece to create this scholarship award for a student who emulates these traits.

This award provides the Greece community the opportunity to recognize a student that regularly upholds exemplary moral values, devotes time and energy into helping serve the Greece community, and consistently displays outstanding leadership skills.


The criteria for a nominee are as follows:

  • Nominee must be a resident of the Town of Greece
  • Nominee is a high school student in twelfth grade
  • Nominee has held at least one leadership position in an organization
  • Nominee actively participates in community service activities
  • Nominee displays excellent moral values
  • Plan to attend a 2-4 year college/vocational training program
  • Have attained at least a B average


The Town of Greece Youth Board will be screening all documents to determine the recipient of this award.
