Kristopher Dent of Nikiski recently was named the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Kenai Peninsula 2004 Youth of the Year.

Dent will compete against other Boys and Girls Club youth for the Alaska State Youth Of the Year title. Five regional winners selected from among the state winners will compete for a national honor in Washington, D.C., where the national winner will be officially installed by the president in a White House ceremony in September. The winner also will receive a $10,000 scholarship from Reader's Digest Foundation.

He is the son of Kimberli and Kelly Dent. Dent is a senior at Nikiski Middle-Senior High School.
