Langley celebrates BC Youth Week

From left: High school students Myriah Kinna, Madison Guy and Joshua Wasilenkoff from the youth team show off their first dish from the BC Youth Week Council Cook-off. The high school students went head-to-head against members from City council and City staff to cook two dishes from scratch in little over an hour. The youth team won the competition by just one point. James Gilmore, manager at Price Smart Foods, donated $180 in ingredients for the competition.  - Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times

From May 1-7 young people throughout the City and Township had the opportunity to participate in a variety of special events for BC Youth Week.

Ranging from a skate board jam, a bike show and a poetry slam to a council cook-off and even an amazing race, kids and teens    across the two municipalities were celebrated with fun activities created by youth for youth.

Since 1995 Youth Week  has been held across the provincial during the first week of May to help build connections between young people and their communities.

Skate Board Jam

Walnut Grove Secondary student William Savage, 16, shows off some of his favourite tricks on his skateboard during the Skate Jam at Walnut Grove Community Centre. This is the first of six different events being held by the Township of Langley during BC Youth Week, from May 1-7. The Skate Jam gave an opportunity for teens to enjoy skate and bike demos, food, prizes and "really loud music" at their local hangout.
