I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from Utah 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:
Eric is a sophomore. He started an group called "Plant Patrol". His group has helped to remove non-native plants from a local wilderness park and re-introduce native ones.
Morgan is in eighth grade. She has helped to provide over 2,500 lbs of vegetables for local food banks and homeless in her community. Both by donating her own time, as well as encouraging others to get involved.
The Distinguished Finalists are:
M'Lisa Dixon-aiding the disadvantaged
Marshall Lindsay-helping to raise money and bring attention to disabilities
Irfan Mahmud-helping to encourage and educate the sick
Preston Judy-providing disaster relief
Let's hear it for all these amazing kids!
