WATERTOWN — The Northern New York Community Foundation has awarded a combined $10,000 in Community Spirit Youth Giving Challenge grants to 10 nonprofit organizations that serve Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties.

The foundation said in a statement Thursday that the challenge, now in its sixth year, was open to all tri-county middle school students. This year’s program committee reviewed 124 entries from seventh and eighth graders in 11 different school districts who recommended grants to 93 different organizations that serve residents across the three counties.
