Distinguished Finalist

Eleanor Madison

Maple Grove, Minnesota

Eleanor Madison, 13, of Maple Grove, Minnesota, an eighth-grader at Madison Academy, has collected and donated more than 1,000 boxes of cereal and $5,000 for a shelter that serves people experiencing homelessness; her efforts include handing out flyers, soliciting donations door-to-door and placing donation boxes at local businesses. Eleanor first started her project after learning that the shelter where she volunteered rarely received breakfast-related donations.
