I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from Hawaii 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:
Jackson is an eighth grader. He co-founded a nonprofit organization with his sister that has raised nearly $1000,000 to support many projects aiding children in Africa, Mexico and the U.S.
Candonino is a junior. He helped raise over $64,000 to buy temporary housing kits for people in Japan after the earthquake last year.
The Distinguished Finalists are:
Scott Fetz-enhancing community resources
Jessica Sonson-enhancing community resources
Lets hear it for these amazing kids!
