The Mary Awards

Nominations will be accepted through Jan. 31 for a new Northeast Florida youth award program sponsored by St. Vincent’s HealthCare.

The Mary Awards will recognize high school seniors who live in Duval, Clay, Nassau, St. Johns or Baker counties “who lift up our society and serve as positive role models,” according to a St. Vincent’s news release.

Twelve finalists will be chosen, three in each category: academics, athletics, leadership and volunteerism/philanthropy. Each of the four category winners will receive $1,000 each and be honored at an April 30 ceremony.

To make a nomination or get more information, go to jaxhealth.com/maryawards.
