Distinguished Finalist

Lana Guy

Georgetown, South Carolina

Lana Guy, 15, of Georgetown, South Carolina, a sophomore at South Carolina Connections Academy, built and regularly stocks a “little free pantry” with food for people in need in her community; she used money she earned by playing guitar to buy materials, and built, painted and installed the pantry in a busy intersection with the help of her parents and grandparents. Lana was inspired to start this activity after learning about families in her area who are dealing with food insecurity.
