Example of nominees
Members of a service-delivery team saw the need to better communicate information and opportunities with girls and adults in their area, so they organized a group of 15 teens and five volunteers, representing all communities in their jurisdiction, to create new communication strategies using social media (including Facebook, Twitter). As a result, 36 percent more girls attended their local events, 90 percent of open service-team positions were filled, and the council gained 1,350 friends on Facebook.
