Distinguished Finalist

Rebecca Monahan

Cheyenne, Wyoming

Rebecca Monahan, 17, of Cheyenne, Wyo., a member of the Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming and a senior at Cheyenne South High School, revitalized a community garden that had been abandoned, using the opportunity to teach younger Girl Scouts how to plant, care for and harvest crops to donate to a local food bank. Next season, Rebecca plans to establish a wider partnership with the food bank, working to educate people with special needs about gardening, as well.
