Youth Leadership Program will fund team projects

LACONIA — Granite United Way and Laconia School District – Project Extra recently presented a new "Youth Leadership" program for Laconia students.

The program has been developed to provide positive, long lasting change within our local community through a previously untapped resource......our youth. The program supports young adults, ages 10 –20, in the implementation of a youth-created, youth-led project.

Each "team" that successfully launches a project will develop leadership, project management, entrepreneurial, community outreach, and communication skills. Team projects must be sustainable and benefit the community in some way; a completed business plan is an additional requirement.

Each team presents their project to a 3 -5 person community panel for approval to receive up to $1,000 per team for project start-up funds. Granite United Way has contributed $5,000, while Laconia's Project Extra has set aside $2,000 to support this effort.

Those who wish to participate as a mentor or on the community panel to approve projects can cpntact:

Youth Waterfowl Weekend is this Saturday and Sunday

CONCORD —  New Hampshire's 2013 Youth Waterfowl Hunting Weekend will be held statewide on Saturday and Sunday, September 28-29.

To participate, youth must be age 15 or younger and must be accompanied by a properly licensed adult age 18 or older. The adult may not hunt. The youth does not need a hunting license or duck stamp.

"The youth weekend is a great way to get kids involved in waterfowl hunting. It gives them a chance to go with an adult who knows the sport, at a time when it's still fairly warm and good numbers of birds are around," said Ed Robinson, waterfowl biologist for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. "Quality time spent with a child during the youth weekend can help instill in them an appreciation of hunting lore, ethics and our outdoor environment."

All regular season waterfowl regulations, including shooting hours, use of non-toxic shot, etc., apply during the youth weekend. Specific seasons and bag limits for various waterfowl are listed on the Fish and Game website at http://www.huntnh.com/Hunting/Hunt_species/hunt_waterfowl.htm.
