I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from Virginia 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:
Logan is in fifth grade. He started an effort at his school to help raise enough money to donate to "Charity:Water" to provide a well for a village in Ethiopia.
Abby is a freshman. She has helped to raise money for pediatric cancer research simply by playing her guitar. She has played across the country and has videos on YouTube bringing attention to her cause.
