Susan Sarandon Honors Two Girl Scouts as Outstanding Volunteers

Florida's Bradenton Herald reports that two Nebraska students, Kayla Blackwell and Justine Bauer, were honored in the nation’s capital last night for their outstanding volunteer work during the presentation of The 2011 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. The two young people – along with 100 other top youth volunteers from across the country – received $1,000 awards as well as personal congratulations from Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon at the 16th annual award ceremony and gala dinner reception, held at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.

Kayla and Justine were named the top high school and middle level youth volunteers in Nebraska last February.
