Nevada's 2010 Environmental Youth Ambassador
Nevada's 2010 Environmental Youth Ambassador

AIR DATE: July 16, 2010

If you ask Lida Kilchenko why she flew to Australia, she'll say it's because of the water. The high school junior won an essay contest - and a spot as Nevada's 2010 Environmental Youth Ambassador. That earned her a trip to the Land Down Under to study how that country deals with drought. Lida talks about what she learned in Australia, and what her generation of fellow teens can do in Nevada.
