Distinguished Finalist

Bianca Bryant

Divide, Colorado

Bianca Bryant, 17, of Divide, Colorado, a senior at Woodland Park High School, built the first dog park in her community; to do so, she organized a petition, collaborated with her local parks and recreation department, participated in local hearings and held fundraising events that raised more than $40,000 to cover building costs. Bianca, an avid animal lover, decided to focus on this project to give dog owners in her community a place to exercise their four-legged friends.
