          Akron, Ohio (July 28, 2014) - The City’s premiere youth volunteer group, the Akron PeaceMakers will hold its 6th Annual Teen Expo, Thursday, July 31, 6 to 9 p.m. at Lock 3 in downtown Akron.

          The event is FREE to middle and high school students and is open to all teens in Northeast Ohio and will include music and prizes. There will be various sport activities, interactive mobile game truck, Dancing Heads and the Mobile Video Truck. In addition, teens can experience the Iron Man Obstacle Course, the Teen Sports Challenge, airbrush tattoos and much more.

          A one-hour block of entertainment will close the event. The featured act will be five teens from Canton, Ohio, the Scenic Route Band. They will rock the Lock 3 Stage with music from their soon to be released CD. Also performing will be 15 year old inspirational singer, Kaylah Armstead, who has been singing in the area since she was eight.

          “This is a great event and I hope our young citizens come downtown with their friends to learn about the Akron PeaceMakers,” said Mayor Plusquellic. “Our PeaceMakers successfully promote peace in our city, and they are constantly finding ways to make Akron a stronger, safer community.”

          “Last year more than 1,500 teens from Akron and Summit County attended our event,” said Billy Soule, the program’s creator and Assistant to the Mayor for Community Relations. “We encourage every youth-oriented organization in our area to bring out their teens for a wholesome evening of free fun and entertainment. The only cost would be for food at the concession stand.”

          The PeaceMakers’ program has grown to 100 active members. In 2013, members of the Peacemakers volunteered and participated in more 60 different community projects and provided 4,000 volunteer hours.
