They've done eagle scout projects, volunteered, and set up fundraisers for classmates. Those are just some of the accomplishments of young people honored by the Monroe County Legislature Thursday.
They were honored at the 2013 legislative youth awards.
We spoke with a Gates Chili senior, Imarie Waller, who spends most of her time volunteering. We asked her what she'd tell other students who are looking to make a difference.

Tonight's ceremony was held at the auditorium inside Monroe Community Hospital.
