The first annual Talk Up Yout Edutainment Day was held recently with the goal of bringing youth issues to the forefront in an entertaining way.

Presentations were given on sexual health, self-defence and career advancement. As a part of the proceedings, CranWATA wowed several students with the announcement of their 2016-17 scholarship winners. Each recipient was awarded $100,000 to aid in their education pursuits.

This is CranWATA's second year sponsoring Talk Up Yout with the scholarships.
