FORT PIERCE - Teenagers will showcase their talents and get educated on topics such as bullying, during the fifth annual Teen Summit on July 6.

"We're trying to keep the kids busy," said Paul Pearson, director the Fort Pierce Police Athletic League.

The event, also sponsored by Community Outreach Program for the Performing Arts, will be at the PAL center, 903 South 21st St., Fort Pierce. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will include a free lunch and snacks.

Mr. Pearson said the event targets teenagers, ages 11-17.

Part of it will involve teenagers doing dance and singing performances, he said.

Other segments will include a presentation about bullying and a panel session where teenagers can ask questions about different topics, such as law enforcement, Mr. Pearson said.

Teenagers will have the opportunity to meet peers from other youth organizations, he said.

Youth from the Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County and various other youth associations were invited, he said.
