To the community,
I would like to draw the community’s attention to an upcoming important event. The Northcoast Youth Summit (NYS) is a yearly event hosted here in Humboldt County that is designed to draw youth together in learning. 7th-12th grades are invited to attend NYS. In order to enter, you can either sign up online or register the day of (March 17th). Pre-registration is $20 and the day of registration is $30.
I, myself, have attended NYS twice so far. Both times I got to meet tons of new people from all around Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity counties. I also got to enter all kinds of interesting workshops each time I attended. There are many cool workshops such as Origami Fun (which I plan to go to) and First Aid (which will get you first-aid certified).
Raptors of the North Coast was a really fun workshop I took last year. I am going to take it again this year. The handlers bring real birds of prey. They talk about things like the difference in feather density and how that affects their flight and how quiet an owl’s flight is compared to a falcon’s.
At the lunch break this year, we will be having a 25′ climbing wall as well as a bungee jump trampoline.
This year’s NYS will be held on the College of the Redwoods campus and will go from 8 A.M.- 4 P.M. Light breakfast and lunch are included in the price.Registration is now open at www.ucanr.edu/2018NYS.
I hope to see many fellow youths attend.
