Distinguished Finalist

Mailee Windauer

Kalispell, Montana

Mailee Windauer, 18, of Kalispell, Montana, a senior at Glacier High School, started “Project WIND,” a summer-long program that provided meals and snacks to students in her community; she held a fundraising spaghetti dinner, shopped for food, and packed and distributed 75 grocery bags of food each week. Mailee started her project after learning that more than half the students in her community depend on free or reduced lunch during the school year, but do not receive similar support in the summer.
