She was one of 250 students across the country chosen to attend.

A Canon-McMillan High School student has been selected to represent Pennsylvania as a National Youth Delegate at the 2013 Washington Youth Summit on the Environment at George Mason University.

Nicole Simonetti, who lives in Canonsburg, has been awarded the opportunity to join a select group of 250 students from across the country to participate in a week-long study of leadership in environmental science and conservation.

She was chosen based on her academic accomplishments and "a demonstrated interest and excellence in leadership in the sciences and conservation studies."

George Mason University along with its partners—National Geographic and the National Zoo—will welcome the nation's youth scholars in Washington, D.C. from June 23-28 at the campus.

With distinguished faculty, guest speakers, and direct access to elite D.C. practitioners, the Washington Youth Summit on the Environment offers aspiring environmentalists and student leaders an unparalleled experience.

The summit will encourage and inspire young leaders who desire a unique experience focused on successful careers in the industry.
