I was one of 11 winners at the National Youth Activist Awards ceremony in Nashville TN on April 2nd, 2017. Youth and young adults from ages 8 to 27 were nominated by the community and awarded in 11 categories. I was honored for my environmental leadership and advocacy.
From their website, www.manupagainstbullying.org: "It's not every day that you see youth coming together from across America being rewarded for their great works and accomplishments. This is what makes the National Youth Activist Awards America's most innovative method of teaching youth the importance of putting their families, education, communities, and environment first.
