           A recent Kodiak High School graduate will be recognized statewide later this year as a Spirit of Youth Award recipient. Leila Pyle graduated from KHS in 2013, and will be honored during an awards dinner on April 5 in Anchorage.
           Karen Zeman is the executive director of Spirit of Youth and said the group began in 1996 as a way to recognize positive ways students are contributing to their local communities. She said it is kind of like a year-long recognition 

           “We receive nominations for over 150 teens every year. These are youth that some community member took the time to nominate for recognition. And every young person is recognized through a ceremony put on by their local school board and they’re also featured on the Spirit of Youth radio series which is aired on virtually every public radio station across Alaska. But the year culminates with the Spirit of Youth award which is given to 22 teens, two teens in each of our 11 award categories.”
            Pyle is one of two award winners statewide in the science and environment category. She said she didn’t know she was even nominated until she got the call that she won, but found out the recognition was related to the work she did for the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge.
            “I worked there last summer as part of the Youth Conservation Core crew. We spent part of the time in town working at the visitor center and we would lead kids activities and environmental education programs and we had trainings on climate change and recycling in Kodiak. And we cleaned up a beach as part of the Island Trails Network marine debris clean up project. And then we spent three weeks of the summer out in the field on the refuge at remote sites doing maintenance at refuge public use cabins and helping with ongoing refuge field projects.”

Today we begin part one of a three-part series examining marine debris, and where places in Alaska, specifically Kodiak, stand in clean up efforts.
It’s been about three years since the tsunami in Japan washed away entire towns, sending thousands of tons of debris out to sea, subject to the mercy of ocean currents. Less than eight months after the tsunami, items started showing up in Alaska and have continued to do so in the months and years since.

It will still be a few months before clean up crews will take to Kodiak’s beaches, but as KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs recently learned, the planning process for those clean ups is already well under way.
