The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards honors Bella Rossborough, 11, of Kennebunk as one of Maine's top two youth volunteers of 2017. This nationwide program honors young people for outstanding acts of volunteerism. Bella is awarded for the work that she did toward the plastic bag referendum last spring.
As a state honoree, Bella will receive $1,000, a silver medallion, and an all expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. in May. She will join two honorees from each state for four days of national recognition events.
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is in its 22nd year of partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).
