I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from Illinois 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:
Jonny is a junior. He invented an aerodynamic shield for the front of school buses that reduces wind drag, thereby improving gas mileage and reducing pollution.
Daniella is in eighth grade. She and another student worked on project G.I.V.E., Go Innovate Volunteer & Educate. She currently co-manages a pen-pal program connecting students in the U.S. with students in Bangalore, India.
The Distinguished Finalists are:
John Makowiec-aiding the disadvantaged
Grace Hill-aiding the disadvantaged
Cassidy Muir-aiding the disadvantaged
Sarah Salameh-aiding the disadvantaged
Abigail Hedlin-enhancing community resources

Lets hear it for all these wonderful kids!
