Distinguished Finalist

Siya Kalra

Johns Creek, Georgia

Siya Kalra, 17, of Johns Creek, Georgia, a member of Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta and a junior at The Westminster Schools, runs “Help a Child Smile,” which provides oral hygiene education and supplies to children in low-income areas in Georgia and Dehli, India; in total, she has distributed dental hygiene kits to more than 6,000 children. Siya was inspired to start this project by her grandmother, a pediatrician who treated patients in the slums of India and who died from oral cancer in 2015.
