TOP VOLUNTEER: Valley Teen Awaits National Results | Community Spirit
A West Des Moines teen is in the running to become named America’s Top 10 Youth Volunteers of 2013.
Valley High School student Katelyn Cinnamon, 17, is one of two Iowa nominees for the award along with two other students from each US state.
If crowned at the 18th Annual Prudential Spirit of Community Awards in Washington, D.C. May 6th, Cinnamon would win $5,000, gold medallions, crystal trophies for their schools, and $5,000 grants.
Cinnamon raised $12,000 to buy iPads for each exam room at Blank Children’s Hospital and helped send cancer patients to camp.
