April 24, 2020 was set to be the first annual Pierce County Youth Environmental and Sustainability Summit (YESS). The steering committee comprised of community partners, teachers, and students spent a year planning this event. Then, like many events of 2020, YESS was canceled due to Covid-19. While this was very disappointing, the amount of time, dedication, and effort put forth by the steering committee was recognized and honored with a Pierce County Outstanding Volunteer Award. They will be honored at the start of this year’s virtual YESS taking place on Saturday, April 24th.
