Election issues debate, art and music on display at Stand-Up and Get Down event for teens Saturday in Rocklin

Published on November 03, 2016

Placer County teens have been asking for more art- and music-based events and activities. So, the Placer County Youth Commission, comprised of high school students across Placer County, is co-producing the Stand-Up & Get Down event Saturday to provide opportunities for local teens to enjoy art and music with their peers.

Other sponsoring organizations include Auburn Hip Hop Congress, the Coalition for Placer Youth, the Coalition for Auburn and Lincoln Youth and Rocklin Parks and Recreation Department. From 5 p.m. - 8 p.m., there will be a free art showcase and graffiti, debate and parkour workshops. Students from local high schools will also hold two rounds of debate, with proposed topics including whether voting should be mandatory in the United States and whether America should have stricter gun control laws.

From 8 p.m. - 10 p.m. high school students can enjoy live music at DJ Night for $5. Attendees must present school ID. Proceeds from DJ Night will go to support the Placer Youth Commission’s Youth Impact Awards and positive activities for teens in Rocklin. There will also be a raffle.

Food trucks will be at event and drinks will be offered for sale during DJ Night.
