The Shyne Awards Foundation to Recognize 2023 Award Winners at 14th Annual Premiere Ceremony

By: PRLog

Awards recognize achievements and positive influence of young adults on their communities

PITTSBURGH - June 5, 2023 - PRLog -- The Shyne Awards Foundation will honor the achievements of 11 young adults and one young adult group at its 14th annual premiere ceremony on August 6, 2023. The Shyne Awards Foundation is a non-profit organization that celebrates young adults, ages 13-24, for making a positive impact in their communities through community service, entrepreneurship, academics, the arts, service in ministry, science, youth group participation, or overcoming obstacles.

"It fills me with pride to be able to honor and acknowledge what these young people have accomplished," Orlana Darkins Drewery, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Shyne Awards, said. "With the right support, every young adult can be successful and find their purpose with any background or within any environment."

Growing up in an underprivileged environment, Drewery felt judged. Although she was involved in community service and excelled academically as a young adult, Drewery noticed that her accomplishments were often dismissed because of where she lived. She started The Shyne Awards Foundation with her husband, Darnell A. Drewery, to restore the light within young adults in communities that have been broken due to violence and crime, school drop-out-rate, absence of parents or guardians, and media portrayal of youth. To accomplish this goal, The Shyne Awards Foundation's team and community partners work together each year to acknowledge young adults who exhibit excellent values anywhere in the world. Honorees for the 2023 Shyne Awards include:

Tylynn Gault, Entrepreneurship, Pittsburgh, PA

Nadia Commodore, Leader for Social Change, Pittsburgh, PA

Alivia Trent, Service In Ministry, Pittsburgh, PA

Riley Scuoteguazza, STEM, Pittsburgh, PA

Aaron Walker, Renaissance Award, Glassport, PA

Black Student Union at Sewickley Academy, Young Adult Group, Sewickley, PA

Naomi Gilbert, Arts, Charlotte, N. Carolina

Asia Bigsbee, The Movement Award, Clarksville, TN

Emma Justus, Community Service, New York, NY

The annual awards ceremony will be held at 5pm on August 6 at the Pittsburgh Playhouse in Downtown, Pittsburgh. The event will include a red-carpet ceremony, local celebrities, past Shyne Award honorees, entertainment, and more.
