Rep. Gosar Presents 15-Year-Old Constituent with Congressional Bronze Medal Award

APACHE JUNCTION, ARIZ. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) presented 15-year-old Brandon Colling of Gold Canyon with the Youth Congressional Bronze Medal Award. The Congressional Award is the award the United States Congress gives to young Americans who achieve their own challenging goals in four categories: Volunteer Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness and Expedition/Exploration. The program is open to anyone ages 14 to 23.

Rep. Gosar said, “I’m proud to present Brandon with the Congressional Bronze Medal Award. Brandon proved that he can achieve anything he sets his mind to; he doesn’t wait for others to set the bar for him.”

“Our nation is built on character traits like the ones Brandon exemplifies: self-determination, commitment and individual responsibility,” Rep. Gosar continued. “Thank you for being a leader in your community and a positive example for your peers.”

Background:
The Congressional Award is non-partisan, voluntary and non-competitive. Participants earn Bronze, Silver, and Gold Congressional Award Certificates and Bronze, Silver, and Gold Congressional Award Medals. Each level involves setting goals in the four program areas. You move at your own pace, on your own or with your friends. This is not an award for past accomplishments. Instead, you are honored for achieving your own challenging goals.
