Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks. The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State. Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous. A letter will be mailed to the families of students that are in participating grade levels containing information about the survey.
