Positive Role Models
All of the finalists demonstrate a passion for what they do, and articulate that they have a responsibility to the planet, and for future generations.
The finalists are from North and Central America, Africa, Asia, Australia, and Europe, and from various races and ethnicities. They all have diverse educational backgrounds. One finalist is a 14-year old girl.
