Synergy & Leadership Exchange has named Youth Energy Summit (YES!) as a 2017 Minnesota Ethical Leadership Award recipient. Many outstanding applications were considered, but only three were selected for recognition. According to the award letter, the blue-ribbon panel was impressed with the character and ethical leadership development exhibited by the YES! students.
One of the judges commented, “I liked the experiential learning and how the program serves as a platform for a student’s voice in the community (practice citizenship).”
YES! will be honored by Synergy & Leadership Exchange at the Character Recognition Awards ceremony May 25th at the State Office Building, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
