Katie Rudoff

Wyoming

Katie Rudoff, Monroe Middle School, Green River, organized a "Scavenger Hunt" food drive for the less fortunate in her community. She gathered her friends, family members and other town residents and formed several teams that competed against each other to collect as much food as possible. Almost 2,500 food items were collected after the first year's drive. Rudoff intends to make the food drive an annual event.

"I showed people that youth can accomplish something by volunteering their time and efforts and that working hard for a goal can be fun and rewarding."
