Conservationists of the Year:
Chillicothe Independent, Chillicothe, Illinois
As of April 18, 2007, Nadia and Eve's sales of folded cranes had raised $2,500! In April the girls were invited to sell cranes at the Illinois Audubon annual convention. There the girls were awarded the Youth Conservationist of the Year award. They didn’t know they were getting it, so they were very surprised! Do you see their their awards on the table? The girls built this display for the occasion. The local news and two newspapers carried their story, with MORE good results. A reader decided to give a $2,000 match, plus the company she works for has a matching gift fund, and will donate another $2,000!
Well done, Nadia and Eve. Congratulations!
