Two local high school students have been selected to attend the 2013 United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth this summer, joining hundreds of other teens from throughout the U.S., Canada and other nations to study and learn about the United Nations.

Sophia Solano, a junior at Newport High School, and Maria Alvarado, a junior at Waldport High School, were selected by the Lincoln City Odd Fellows Lodge after submitting winning essays about the U.N.ís role in protecting the health and welfare of children, and then participating in a speech competition.

Each lodge chooses its own winners and pays their expenses.
