Distinguished Finalist

Julia Hamblen

Shelbyville, Indiana

Julia Hamblen, 18, of Shelbyville, Indiana, a member of Shelby County 4-H and a senior at Shelbyville Senior High School, recruited and led a group of peers who raised money for the Salvation Army by soliciting donations outside of local businesses. Julia, who played holiday music on her guitar as they volunteered, chose this project because her family received support from the Salvation Army when their home caught on fire in 2014.
