On Saturday March 12th 2017, the Suffolk County Council (Boy Scouts of America)’s Honor Guard from Boy Scout Troop 343 (Hauppauge) participated in the New York State Congressional Youth Award Ceremony at Hunter College. The Honor Guard presented the Colors at the start of the ceremony. New York State Congressman Joe Crowley (14th Congressional District: Queens and Bronx) presented the awards. The recipients were from all around the State of New York and ranged in age from 14 to 24 years. The young adults who earned these awards worked hard in their communities on projects and spent many hours volunteering in their communities. The goal for the Congressional Youth Award Program is to help guide young people to become caring and model citizens.
