Centennial accepting applications for youth commission, awards


Centennial teens can help city officials learn about the concerns of the city's youth while encouraging greater youth participation in city issues.

Centennial is accepting applications for its youth commission, which was formed by the city council in July 2003 to provide a voice for the city's young residents. The commission includes 11 teens ages 13-18 and serves as an advisory board to city council. Members participate in citywide events, develop community initiatives and perform community service projects.

Terms are for two years. Meetings are the second and fourth Thursday of each month, from 7-9 p.m. at the Centennial Civic Center, 13133 E. Arapahoe Road. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. March 18.
