Sylvia Fleming was the Middle School winner in the Arts & Creativity category for her project For the Love of Art. Sylvia made six large wood bins by hand, held an art supply drive and then created simple instruction sheets with art projects that could be made using the supplies provided in each bin. The art supply bins were donated to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Family Outreach Center.
Miranda Reed and Haily Simms were two members of a teen group honored in the Community Involvement category. They helped raise $10,000 worth of supplies for firefighters and evacuees impacted by last summer's Omak fires. When asked why they did this they responded, "We literally woke up, saw someone asking for help on Facebook and decided to help out."
We congratulate these three outstanding young women!
