In the early days of Upopolis, a connection was made between two youth, Katrina, and Maggie. These two-youth supported one another and many others during their adolescent years on Upopolis. Peer support and building connections are two of the key goals for Upopolis. To honor past connections and to celebrate new ones, Upopolis is establishing the Upopolis Connection award. The recipients of the Upopolis Connection Awards will also embody these goals.
