the essential
The Tarn prefecture met with young people from the communes of Séquestre, Saint-Julien du Puy and Valdériès, to defend their infrastructure projects. An afternoon full of speaking engagements, which allowed the children to collect grants.

For the second time, Tarn youth are mobilizing on their territory. At the initiative of the prefecture, 3 municipalities are called upon to defend projects for their village. And it is the turn of the young people to speak, in front of an exceptional jury composed of the prefect Michel Vilbois, the former senator Jean-Marc Pastor, as well as the head of the coordination and animation office territorial Marion Vernhes.

Empowering young citizens

With the support of their teachers, schoolchildren from Séquestre, Saint Julien du Puy and Valdèries shared their ideas. Drawings and slideshows followed one another: Creation of a Padel court for Saint Julien du Puy, development of a city stadium for Valdéries, and rehabilitation of a playground for the Sequester.

Following a short deliberation, the three projects received the requested funding. The municipality of Saint Julien du Puy won the largest grant, which amounted to 117,429 euros. “A Source of pride” for young Louis, who came to defend his project to build a padel court, despite “a lot of stress”.

“The idea of ​​this donation is to see young people committed to their municipality,” insists Michel Vilbois, prefect of Tarn. “The dimension is much more touching because the projects are carried out by children and we want young people to get involved,” adds Marion Vernhes. After a well-deserved snack, the young people leave serenely with the desire “to ensure the construction and proper maintenance of this equipment”, she concludes.
