Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r Joni Young of Spanish Fork was recognized as “Volunteer of the Year” for her service over the past year for the Non-profit organization Operation Underground Railroad, whose mission is to fight the epidemic of child sex trafficking around the world. She was honored with the Volunteer of the Year Award for her service and dedication to this cause.

Operation Underground Railroad’s Mission: To shine a light worldwide on the global epidemic of child sex trafficking, and in so doing rescue more children from slavery and assist law enforcement to seek justice for those who violate children. We place survivors on a path to recovery by partnering with vetted aftercare providers. Since 2013, O.U.R. has rescued over 2,100 survivors and arrested over 1,200 traffickers.

Volunteers are the living breathing heart of this organization. They are the true unseen heroes in this fight for children to be free of horrific abuses in this world. They truly are the light in the darkness! This year we honor Joni Young with the Volunteer of the Year Award, for her volunteer service and dedication to this cause. She has dedicated herself tirelessly to be a helping hand and has had an enormous impact on our success.
