Hello and welcome to the Virtual Youth Environmental Summit!
The Youth Environmental Summit (YES) is usually a day camp style event where children from the Copper River region come together for multiple days, to participate in activities that will give them a foundation to become good stewards of their environment. This style of YES was going on for 12 years straight before the Covid-19 pandemic.
Unfortunately, YES was cancelled the past two years due to this pandemic, but this Winter Break, the organizers of YES has put together some videos to carry on the tradition of environmental stewardship.
So we invite you to join us December 20, 21, 22, 28, and 30 to watch a YES video that will contain valuable information on environmental stewardship. With each of these videos, we will have a challenge for you to complete. Using the DropBox submission below, we will ask you to submit a picture of you completing your challenge. If you complete all of the challenges, you will win a prize!
