Steak & Burger is an annual celebration of youth where six outstanding Club members compete for the 2023 Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties Youth of the Year title. Since 1947, Youth of the Year has been the premier recognition program of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America that celebrates the extraordinary achievements of Club members across the nation. Candidates compete at the local Club, state and regional levels before attending the national celebration. Club members who compete for the Youth of the Year title embody the values of leadership service, academic excellence, and healthy lifestyles.
