South Summit student heads to D.C. for Youth Summit on Environment

PEOA, Utah — South Summit High School student Braxten Blazzard was selected earlier this year to represent Peoa as a National Youth Delegate at the Youth Summit on Environment held at George Mason University in Washington D.C.

“Blazzard was chosen due to his academic accomplishments at South Summit High and his interest in the sciences, and his conservation efforts,” said Jodi Jones, SSSD Public Relations Director, in a statement.

He’ll join a group of 100 students from across the country from June 25-June 30 to study leadership in environmental science and conservation.

They’ll hear from special guest speakers, researchers, and scientists, explore the Smithsonian National Zoo, enjoy exclusive field visits, and receive one college credit at the end of the summit. Blazzard will document his trip by taking over the South Summit School District Instagram page.

The Washington Youth Summit on the Environment (WYSE) is a unique student leadership conference designed to develop and encourage future leaders in the field of environmental studies and conservation in the 21 century. The Advisory Board is chaired by Mark Bauman. President of Virtual Wonders and former Executive Vice President of National Geographic Television. Additional members include world-renowned scholars, distinguished scientists, and award-winning university faculty.

Delegates gain an insider look at environmental science, policy, and conservation issues.

The South Summit School District, located in Kamas, serves 1,700 students in four schools.
