Making a difference in the community
ASOTIN, WA – Twenty-six people and eight organizations have been recognized for making a difference in the Asotin County community.

The 13th Annual Youth Awards Night is all about recognizing people who've gone above and beyond in their community. Alison Todderud is a senior at Asotin High School, as well as a youth commissioner. She’s been involved with the Youth Commission for six years. She says the program gives youth a chance to get involved in their community and make a difference in others’ lives.

"Not a lot of youth take this opportunity, but to see these youth go out there and make changes they'd like to see in the community is very outstanding,” said Todderud. “You get drawn in and want to do more."

There are fifteen youth commissioners this year and Alison said she hopes to see more youth get involved in years to come
