Jacob Schanzenbach

Washington

Jacob Schanzenbach, Liberty High School, Spangle, was recognized for designing and implementing a new address system for his entire hometown of Rosalia. After working with his local volunteer fire and ambulance corps, Jacob determined that the city's address system made it tough for emergency services to find homes. Jacob surveyed Rosalia and developed an entirely new address schema. The city council adopted his plan, which is helping emergency services workers respond more quickly.
