Distinguished Finalist

Oliver Simon

Morristown, New Jersey

Oliver Simon, 18, of Morristown, New Jersey, a senior at Morristown-Beard School, is the co-founder of “Extra Helpings Delivered,” through which he helps make and deliver more than 100 meals per month for senior citizens experiencing food insecurity; he also helps coordinate efforts, recruit and train volunteers and run social media accounts to increase awareness of his cause. Oliver, whose family regularly delivers meals at Thanksgiving, started this project after realizing the recipients could use support year-round.
