State Honoree

Justin Eveloff


Justin Eveloff, Kim Junior High, Council Bluffs, helped found Iowa Children's Recognition Day after two youngsters were murdered in his town. Inspired to build greater awareness of the dangers of violence to children, he organized "Kid’s fest," an evening of entertainment and children's safety demonstrations. Eveloff collected $650 in donations, which was used for entertainment, postage, advertising, and other costs to carry out the five-hour community event.

"We should all try to make the world a better place."
