Youth Environmental Action Summit

April 5 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Yeas
A one-day conference to harness the power and enthusiasm of students for making positive environmental change in their community! The Youth Environmental Action Summit (YEAS) is open to students in grades 3-12 from Worcester, Wicomico, and Somerset counties.
 
Before the summit, students will submit a “proposal” for an action project (due March 15th – see www.yeasummit.org for details). At the summit, students will have the opportunity to present on their ideas, learn from their peers, and hear from local organizations and industry professionals who are working on hyper-local environmental issues. Finally, qualifying student groups will be awarded funding to support the implementation of their projects!
 
Join YEAS as a class, an after school program, club, community group, sport team, faith-based group, or just as friends!
 
We’re here to support you getting started – email elise.trelegan@noaa.gov for more information.
