Cobenais headshotClub staff unanimously selected Darion Cobenais as Red Lake Nation Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year 2010.  Chosen from among eleven other  youth, Cobenais will compete against other Boys & Girls club members for the Minnesota State Youth of the Year title and a $1,000 college scholarship from Tupperware Brands Corporation. 
"Being named Youth of the Year is the highest honor a Boys & Girls Club member can receive", said Michelle Graves, Red Lake Nation Boys & Girls Club Program Director.  Cobenais is a sophomore attending the Red Lake High School, ISD District #38, and has been a member of the Red Lake Nation Boys & Girls Club for three years.  He worked as a Junior Program Assistant the past two summers and volunteered over 50 hours at Club. Darion lives with his grandparents, Nickel and Missy Cook. 
If Cobenais wins at the state competition, he will compete for the title of the Northwest Regional Youth of the Year and an additional $10,000 scholarship from Tupperware Brands. Five regional winners will advance to Washington, D.C. in September to compete for the title of BGCA'S National Youth of the Year.
