Distinguished Finalist

Hyun Bang

Chesterfield, Missouri

Hyun Bang, 19, of Chesterfield, Mo., a senior at Parkway West High School, found “Kids for Kids (K4K),” a school club that has raised more than $300 to buy birthday gifts for foster children and meets several times a month to sing, swim and play sports with kids with disabilities. Motivated by the bullying he experienced as a child after moving from South Korea, Hyun recruited 10 friends to help him promote inclusion for local kids in need.
