Elected leaders and advocates step up for Kentucky kids in countless ways every day, especially in Frankfort throughout the legislative session. During Children’s Advocacy Week, Kentucky Youth Advocates and partners in the Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children presented Champion for Children awards to honor those state leaders, advocates, and young people for their efforts.

At this year’s Rally for Kentucky Kids, Eltuan Dawson earned a Champion for Children Award!

This award commemorates Eltuan’s commitment to True Up as a Peer Network Member, work on the Analysis of Kentucky’s Residential Foster Care Report, and continued advocacy on issues related to foster youth and broader child welfare system.
