I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from South 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:
Maren is a junior. She has helped collect over 6,000 lbs of soap for the "Global Soap Project." The group reprocesses soap into new bars and sends them to disadvantaged communities world wide.
Kadon is in seventh grade. For the past six years he has gave his time to senior citizens in his area. He has also helped encourage his 4-H club community services to help at local nursing homes.
And the Distinguished Finalists:
Amy Shan-protecting the environment
Katherine Van Gerpen-teaching, tutoring and mentoring other young people
Let's hear it for these awesome kids!
