State Honoree

Jason Kelly

Arizona

Jason Kelley, 13, of Granite Mountain Middle School in Prescott, Arizona, the youngest member of the Prescott Chamber of Commerce, used his involvement to create a Youth Chamber of Commerce. "I thought that a youth chamber would provide kids who are leaders and entrepreneurs with an outlet for business opportunities," said Jason, who also volunteers for the chamber. Jason proposed his youth chamber idea, which recently was approved, and is now developing the plan to launch and promote it within the community. "It is encouraging that the chamber has the confidence in me to coordinate the new youth division," Jason said.
