Distinguished Finalist

Meagan Miller

Augusta, Kansas

Meagan Miller, 17, of Augusta, Kansas, a junior at Augusta High School, created and runs “Passes for Classes,” which provides free bus passes to students in her community; for the project, she sold raffle tickets, secured a grant and sold shaved ice. Meagan, who worked with school social workers to help identify people who could benefit from the unlimited bus passes, was inspired to start her project after learning about students in her area who missed class due to lack of transportation.
