Brooklyn Youmans

Casper, Wyoming

Brooklyn Youmans, 16, of Casper, Wyoming, a sophomore at Natrona County High School, organized several “roof sits,” fundraising events to benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation, in which she and her fellow students sat in public areas and solicited donations from the community; her efforts helped raise more than $16,000. For each event, Brooklyn helped spread awareness about the cause, recruited students and teachers to participate, and organized the schedule and locations for dozens of volunteers.
