I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from Iowa 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 State Honorees are:
Hannah is in seventh grade. She helped organize a campaign to make personal care kits, with items like razors, shaving cream, tissues, etc., and pillowcases for families transitioning from local homeless shelters to more permanent homes.
