National Youth Week is May 1 – 7 every year. The purpose is to celebrate youth and their active participation in their community. Whether it is recreation, drama, sport, dance, civic engagement, art, volunteerism or leadership, every day young people are involved in meaningful activities. National Youth Week is a time to honour their involvement!

This year Clearwater’s Youth Week committee invites you to celebrate with us by attending or participating in one of our planned events. May 1, we will kick off Youth Week with Youth Awards nominations during lunch hour at CSS. If you know someone, youth or adult, who you feel should be recognized for their dedication to youth in our community, please stop by CSS on May 1 between 12:45 and 1:35 p.m. to fill out a nomination form or you can request an electronic copy by emailing healthyliving@docbc.ca. Winners will receive awards during a recognition assembly at CSS, in May, date to be announced. The Clearwater Carnage BMX, Scooter and SK8 Competition will take place Sunday, May 4, 11 a.m.— 2 p.m. at Rotary Sports Park, free entry and admission. To wrap up Youth Week, the Clearwater’s Got Talent Competition will take place at CSS Pitt, 6:30-8:30 p.m. The event is free to enter and admission is $2 at the door. All proceeds will go toward a school-wide barbeque at CSS to take place Friday, May 9.
