Category: Youth Voices

The Norman Williams Library and The Vermont Standard have teamed up to create this new initiative called “Youth Voices” to enable individual youth to have a voice, to be heard and to have their creativity recognized through print, video, text and photography through The Vermont Standard newspaper online edition and website, www.thevermontstandard.com. This is an innovative outlet for the young members of our community to express their creativity in the local media.
