Big honor for Burlington teen

Posted: Updated:

Yusuf Abdi, 16, was named 2014 Vermont Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year.

He received the award during a celebration at the Vermont Statehouse Tuesday.

Judges called him extraordinary for his age, articulate, bright and mature.

Abdi will now get the chance to compete in New York City at the regional level. If he wins, he'll move on to nationals and get a chance at a $50,000 scholarship and a meeting with the president of the United States.
