I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from New Jersey 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:
Giovanna is in eighth grade. She helped for a group that connects children in her town with children in Brazil. She also goes to Brazil every summer to help the children in Brazil.
Stephanie is a sophomore. She not only helped her family start a non-profit, but she also formed "Include ME!". It is a program that helps bring together all kids to help end bullying and create understanding and acceptance of each other.
The Distinguished Finalists are:
Katelyn Eystad-aiding the disadvantaged
Anne Kuster-aiding the disadvantaged
Carly Levin-assisting the disabled
Andrew Bauer-helped educate other students about financial responsibility
Victoria Pan-protecting the environment
Joseph Mandes-spreading the spirit of volunteerism
Let's hear it for these awesome kids!
