Statewide Outstanding Youth Prevention Award

March 29, 2014

Logan Tootle, a senior at Lee's Summit North High School, was awarded the 2014 Outstanding Youth Prevention Award by Missouri’s Youth Adult Alliance, (MYAA). The award honors youth that have made a commitment and significant contribution to prevent underage drinking and substance use in their communities. Amanda Baker, from the Division of Behavioral Health, presented the prestigious award.

"Logan exemplifies the dedication, resourcefulness, and tenacity it takes for youth to make a difference in their communities," said Chelsea Billeck, MYAA Project Director. "MYAA is thrilled to recognize Logan for her hard work over the past year."

Logan is involved with National Honor Society, Bronco Smart at Lee’s Summit North High School, Lee’s Summit CARES Youth Advisory Board, and Truman Medical Center’s Youth Advisory Board. Logan is also active in Student Senate, Spanish Club, and Varsity Softball. She has received Lee’s Summit CARES Commitment Award and Rotary Student of the Month.

Coalition leaders throughout the state nominated youth for the award with an essay highlighting their community service and extra-curricular activities. The awards were presented on March 26, 2014 as part of the 10th annual Speak Hard Youth Conference in Jefferson City.

MYAA is a statewide coalition made up of teens and adults that help local communities address problems with underage alcohol use; as it is the most abused substance by Missouri teens. Since 1997 the coalition has been instrumental in passing local and state level legislation including the passage of beer keg registration, social host/open house parties, and the ban of alcohol without liquid (AWOL) devices. MYAA is program of ACT Missouri, the statewide training and resource center for substance abuse prevention.
