Ketchikan club to be recognized to community service

Ketchikan's Kayhi Interact Club has won the Spirit of Service Award for "Service to Community" and will be recognized at a banquet March 24.

 

The club seeks to improve the community locally and globally through diverse youth-led projects. They look beyond the school environment to assist the Pioneer Home, the local domestic violence shelter, and Friends of Tanzanian Families and Communities.

Teenagers across the state will be recognized for their contributions, with 22 awards. Awards were given in 11 categories to either individuals or groups.

The Spirit of Youth banquet will be at 6 p.m. March 24 at the Marriott Downtown in Anchorage.

The mission of Spirit of Youth is to promote, create and recognize positive youth involvement in local communities. It began in 1997 as a media-based project, to address the growing negative image of teenagers in Alaska, and has helped spread positive messages about what youth are doing across newspapers, television and radio. Teenagers are nominated by adults and peers.

This year, Spirit of Youth received 140 nominations across 40 communities.
