Fifty-four young people ages 15 to 17 learned about decision making, diversity and leadership styles during a four-day Rotary-sponsored event for youth.

Known as Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, the program provides education and training for young people with outstanding leadership potential.

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Hagerstown, Randi Waller and Erin Ziegler from South Hagerstown High School heard presentations and participated in such activities as a business venture competition and team-building games with other young people sponsored by other Rotary clubs throughout the area.

Participants received training from successful professionals, with special emphasis on the importance of ethics and community service. They often become leaders in their schools, communities and career paths.

The Rotary Club of Hagerstown is part of Rotary International's global network of more than 31,000 clubs in 166 countries. Rotary International consists of 1.2 million professionals who volunteer to improve the quality of life in their home and world communities.
