Tomorrow evening, four local youth will be receiving their bronze award in the Duke of Edinburgh’s program. These youth are Kyler Bayko, Jaryn Anderson, Tyler O’Handley and Karsten Andersen.

Each participant in the program had to work on two different areas for thirteen weeks and a third for twenty-six weeks. These areas are service, skill and physical recreation.

Deputy Mayor Chris Thiessen will be presenting the awards tomorrow evening at the Elk's Hall at 8 pm. 

All four of the awards recipients will be moving on to the silver level, which involves further pursuit of service, skill development, physical recreation and adventurous journeys. 

The Duke Edinburgh’s International Award is an internationally recognized program for young people, building their skills to equip them for life and work. By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in their development.​  ​
