Distinguished Finalist

Leah Stoogenke

Newtown, Pennsylvania

Leah Stoogenke, 17, of Newtown, Pa., a senior at Pennsbury High School-West, spent two months writing, editing and helping to illustrate Maggie’s Box, a children’s book encouraging female creativity and empowerment—efforts that raised nearly $900 for The Campaign for Female Education. The money donated from the book’s sales funded the tuition, books, uniforms and other expenses for four female high school students in Africa.
