Each month Mayor Knauss presents the Mayor’s Youth Award to a deserving young person at the City Council meeting. In cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce, a local business presents $25.00 in Chamber Bucks to the youth. To be eligible for the award, the youth must be in the Chewelah School system (also Homelink), grades 1-12. I am looking for those young people who are good citizens and contribute to the community, no matter how small the contribution. Letters to Mayor Knauss, PO Box 258, Chewelah, WA” 99109 or e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org should include the student’s name, why you are nominating him/her, and contact information.
