I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from Idaho for The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. The program also chooses anywhere from 2 to 10 runners up in each state. They are named Distinguished Finalists and receive a bronze medallion. I will be listing them as well underneath the Honorees.
I will give a short description of what the Honoree has been nominated for and then you can click on their name to find out more!
The two state Honorees are:
Ariane is a senior. She founded "Hands4Uganda", a nonprofit organization, that has raised nearly $30,000 to help a school in Uganda and the students there.
Emily is a sixth grader. She and her sister created a nonprofit charity that sells dish towels to help raise money for families of children needing heart surgery. She has raised over $60,000 so far.
The Distinguished Finalists are:
Emily Carroll-aiding the disadvantaged
Kyle Ashby-encouraging reading and literacy
Lets hear it for these amazing kids!
