Michigan

Jonathan Snyder, Grand Blanc High School, organized and operated a community carnival that has raised more than $13,000 over the past nine years to benefit leukemia patients at Hurley Hospital's Pediatric Oncology Unit. His event is called the Annual Jeff Pettit Memorial Carnival, in memory of a family friend who died of cancer.

"Service to your fellow man is the essence of community, for volunteerism is the most essential component of participation."
