Yanick Dalhouse

Minnesota

Yanick Dalhouse, Moorhead Senior High School, organized her area's Empty Bowls Project. This hunger awareness program was sponsored by STARS (Students Taking Action Responding with Service), of which Yanick is president. She spent hundreds of hours coordinating the event, which provided food to over 500 people. The event also raised $6,000 for the Great Plains Food Bank and Fargo-Moorhead Food Pantry.

"Young people should take part in service activities because it will help change the negative stereotypes people have about today's youth."
