This year, two of the Ten Outstanding Young Omaha Teens are Marian students. Megan Patterson ’23 and Grace Sparwasser ’24 were named as recipients for the 17th annual Ten Outstanding Young Omaha Teens award (TOYO! Teens)!

In 2005, TOYO! Teens was created to encourage positive achievement in teens by selecting 10 teens who contribute to the Omaha metro community through volunteerism and community action. TOYO! Teens is a program of the Omaha Jaycees (Omaha Junior Chamber of Commerce). Its mission is to enrich the community through individual development, community involvement, management opportunities and networking events. An awards ceremony will be held but is being postponed until 2022 due to COVID-19 delays.
