School: West Academy
Brothers Jeremiah and Joshua have written a book titled Champions of Change / Live to Give. Their caring and compassionate nature has inspired children around the world (as far away as Malaysia) to become “change agents” in their own communities “by doing little deeds that have a huge impact.” Their desire is to make the world a better place by giving back to their community and to those who are less fortunate, and the have recruited other children to join their efforts. Recent projects include hosting a holiday party for the homeless; donating a shipment of books to Tanzania; hosting a Kidpreneur Fair where they gave away 100 book bags and passes to the National Museum of Play; helping a child with autism write a book; and organizing a “fun run” to raise money for a child suffering from cancer.
What the judges had to say:
“These brothers are role models to us all. They remind us that we all can be change agents to make the world a better place, one little deed at a time. Joshua and Jeremiah truly are champions.”
