May is Youth Appreciation Month in Vermont, and each year we come together to celebrate Bennington youth for all that they contribute to the community!
Congratulations to Avery, Star, Gavin and Andrew, the winners of our 2021 Youth Photovoice Contest! This year’s contest theme—Thrive—asked young people: what people, places, or things help make the Bennington area great? Submissions were reviewed by a panel of community leaders and ACT members, and winners receive a prize pack that includes a membership to the Bennington Rec Center, gift certificates to the Bennington Bookshop and Benner’s Pizza, and ACT swag!
In collaboration with our prevention friends at The Collaborative, ACT has put together a report based on the 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Report for the whole of Bennington County.

Dispensing Marijuana to Youth can land you in some very serious hot water in Vermont.
