The national theme is "Listen to the Children." Louisville Chums has worked with the Office of Multicultural Ministry's Catholic Enrichment Center for several years on many initiatives focusing on young women.

Mrs. Jo Ann Cooper, Holy Rosary Parish (Springfield) will receive the Genevieve Boone Award.
