speech addressing the prompt, "What changes must our education
system make to change the odds for young people growing up in
poverty?" Stefne did an outstanding job and placed 2nd in the
nation! In addition to winning 2nd place in her competition,
Stefne attended workshops, listened to keynote speakers, and met
educational leaders such as Dr. Bettina Love and Mandy Manning,
National Teacher of the Year. Thanks to all of you who donated
