The Portland branch of the
League of Young Voters recently honored nine people (or groups) for being
"young people" who are "social entrepreneurs," however they
define those concepts.
The group's official announcement of the winners doesn't say anything about the winners

state director Justin Alfond, saying that the award winners "exemplify the
important contributions young people make to Portland."
