I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from New York 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:
Raymond is in eighth grade. He created the "Little St. Nick Foundation". It was created to help children who have been hospitalized not be as scared or upset.
Christopher is a sophomore. He created "Kids Change the World" to help children in need and to help get other children involved in helping out.
The Distinguished Finalists are:
Lynn-Indora Edmond-aiding the disadvantaged
David Cruikshank-aiding the disadvantaged
John Farese-aiding the disadvantaged
Shane Carman-enhancing community resources
Emory Nagar-helping political awareness
Kayla Bubbush-promoting health and safety
Annalise Mozer-promoting health and safety
Jillian Dolce-spreading the spirit of volunteerism
Let's hear it for all these awesome kids!
