Written by 

Over 600 middle year students from different schools in Swift Current attended the eight annual Middle Years Youth Wellness Forum at École Centennial and All Saints schools, Nov. 21. The event, which is sponsored by the Swift Current Kiwanis Club, aims to provide students with information about lifestyle choices through presentations by two keynote speakers. The presenters at this year's forum were Keith Hawkins, an international speaker from California, and professional entertainer and motivational speaker Scott Hammell from Toronto. The event took place during the morning and in the afternoon Hawkins also spoke at Swift Current Comprehensive High School.

He asked students not to judge others, but to find acceptance within themselves as a way to accept others. “What you see in others is what you see in yourself,” he said.
