Once a year, local teens take a turn helping YouthZone and their communities during the annual Ascent fundraiser. This year, high school students share their perspective of the upside-down world of 2020 during the Youth Film Fest – An Inspired View of Today’s World. The Ascent event begins on Sept. 23 with a silent auction. The film festival starts at 7 p.m. on Sept. 25, but the audience can check in at 6:45 to settle in before the show starts. Tickets can be purchased for $35 at https://bit.ly//3j9hhDR.
