I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from North Dakota 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!
Here are the State Honorees:
Hope is a junior. She started "A Day on the Hill for Kids with Special Needs." An event that makes it so children with disabilities can get a chance to go skiing.
Taytum is in eighth grade. She has been working with disabled students at her school since she was in third grade. She also volunteers with "Dream Catchers" a program that helps disabled children play baseball.
The Distinguished Finalists are:
Nicole Rixen-aiding the disadvantaged
Andrew Hershey-teaching, tutoring and mentoring other young people
Let's hear it for these awesome kids!
