Andrew Cha

Chevy Chase, Maryland

Andrew Cha, 17, of Chevy Chase, Md., a senior at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, has raised nearly $10,000 over the past three years to help victims of the water crisis in Flint, Mich., by recruiting fellow tennis players to solicit pledges of 50 cents or a dollar for every hour of practice and competition during their 82-hour varsity season. He also has produced podcasts about child sex trafficking and sneaker-based violence, and tutored recent immigrants as they learn English.
