Idaho

Megan Wardwell, 12, of Les Bois Junior High in Boise, Idaho, has served as a volunteer for the local chapter of the Humane Society since she was 8 years old, and was recently named its Junior Volunteer of the Year. During the school year, Megan offers as much time as she can to the society, but during the summer, she dedicates as much as 50 hours each week to feeding and walking animals and cleaning their cages. She's also supported various Humane Society fund­ raisers, helping to raise money to continue the society's work. "I try to get anyone involved in the Humane Society who shows a great passion for animals, because they really need our help.
