Nia Lambert of Chicago and Jordynn Huskisson of Fisher have been selected as Illinois' top youth volunteers for this year in the 26th annual Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. More than 21,000 young people across the country participated in this year's program. As state honorees, each will receive a $2,500 scholarship, an engraved silver medallion, and an invitation to the program's virtual recognition event. The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, created in 1995 by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, are designed to emphasize the importance our nation places on service to others and to encourage all young Americans to contribute to their communities. Congratulations and thank you, Nia and Jordynn!
