For 25 years now, the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches has recognized Arkansans who have made outstanding contributions to create better opportunities for Arkansas children. These Arkansans personify in word and deed the ideals of the Ranch, and hundreds have gathered each year to pay tribute to their dedication at the Arkansas Children’s Award Dinner. This year, we are celebrating our 25th anniversary by recognizing all our past Arkansas Children’s Award recipients.\nBecause of these uncertain times, we have made the difficult decision to not gather for an in-person dinner this year. Instead we will host a 25th Anniversary Arkansas Children’s Award event on Thursday, October 15 as a virtual tribute to recognize our honorees. The Covid-19 pandemic has made this event even more crucial this year, as the ASYR works to fund its mission of providing homes for some of Arkansas’s most vulnerable boys and girls. Please consider sponsoring or supporting.25th Anniversary Arkansas Children’s Award\nThursday, October 15, 2020\n\nFormer Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe will continue the tradition of serving as Master of Ceremonies, which he has done since our very first year.
