    Boomerang Award History - The Boomerang Youth Recognition Award is a district-wide monthly program which recognizes and honors youth in our community for exemplifying and living by one of the chosen Developmental Assets.  These Developmental Assets were identified as a set of skills, experiences, relationships and behaviors that enable young people to develop into successful and contributing adults.  The Foundation uses the Search Institute as the bedrock for its programs with the ultimate purpose of promoting resilient and responsible youth. 
     
    Nominating a Student - Anyone can nominate a student including a parent, teacher, peer, neighbor, coach, or scout leader.  Each month nominations are collected b the building boomerang coordinator.  Nomination forms can be found HERE.
     
    District Winner Selection and Recognition - Each month CB Cares hosts a breakfast with community leaders and change agents to select the monthly district winner in elementary, middle and high school.  District winners serve as a model to all students in the district and receive school recognition, as well as, have thier picture and name announced in the Bucks County Herald and the CB Cares Monthly Backpack Newsflash that is distributed to the approximately 38,000 CBSD families in the district.  CB Cares will coordinate with the Boomerang Coordinator to present the district winner with a certificate.  Building Coordinators are asked to invite family and peers to the presentation.  These 5-10 minute presentations typically occur in class or during an assembly.  It is a great opportunity to showcase schools and students and have them celebrated with their peers and school community.  
     
    Monthly Building Nominees - The monthly nominees are often recognized through school assembllies, breakfasts and building events and receive a certificate. 
     
    Scholarships - To date, we have awarded over 50K in Boomerang scholarships to deserving high school seniors that have been nominated for the Boomerang Award.
