2015-16 Youth of the Year Award Presented
The Exchange Club of Bellevue is very pleased to present Chris Warfield with its 2015-16 Youth of the Year Award for his essay, “Citizen’s Role in Building a Strong America.”
“America was built off of the power of the people, and has thrived off of that power since 1776. Through the ups and the downs, whether that be the World Wars, Gilded Age, ending of slavery, or Great Depression, the core of America is its people. With many uncertain futures to face, such as foreign affairs or climate change, American citizens are once again placed in the spotlight as the hope and answer to solving these issues and progressing. The citizen’s role in maintaining and advancing America is defined by an increase in education and awareness.” Click here to read the full essay.
