I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from D.C. 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:
Gelatia is in eighth grade. She volunteers at the Sitar Arts Center mentoring other kids and helping staff members with various art projects.

The Distinguished Finalists are:
