For six years Community Futures has sponsored and supported the Youth Achievement and Appreciation Festival, an event which recognizes and showcases the unique talents of our local youth.
The festival highlights the many services available to youth throughout the North Okanagan. Local youth are celebrated through a number of displays showcasing their academic, artistic, athletic and personal achievements. YAA Fest brings together youth, parents, service providers and the larger community to recognize the shared efforts towards the positive development of the youngest members of our community.
This year’s musical performances included Olivia Penalva, Armonia, Camryn Sproule & Angelica Thrift, Redhead and Lucas Ross; as well as performances given by Argyll School of Performing Arts and Motion. We also saw the return of the skateboard competition, courtesy of Bryce from Okanagan Skate Co. Big thank you to all those folks who came out to support this annual event!
