Teens throughout county invited to attend annual Youth Summit

QUEENSBURY - Teenagers throughout the area are busy planning a regional leadership conference, as the Youth Bureaus of Washington and Warren counties are preparing to hold Youth Summit 2010.

Produced by students on the Summit Planning Team, Youth Summit 2010 is a day of team-building and fun, interactive and educational workshop sessions, the team members said this week.

This year's theme is LIFE, an an acronym for Learning Imagination For Excellence. The Summit will be held at Adirondack Community College on March 17 from 8:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lunch is provided.

New this year is a community service project. The Planning Team has asked that each participating student bring a children's book to the Summit that will be donated to non-profit organizations in the area.

Twenty-three area youth serve on the Youth Summit Planning Team, including Warrensburg Central School students Kalvin Duell, Andrew Fish, and Taylor Hughes.
