Katie Stagliano of Summerville, a freshman at Pinewood Preparatory School, has been presented with an engraved silver medallion to recognize her selection by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards as one of South Carolina’s top two youth volunteers of 2014.

Katie established Katie’s Krops, a nonprofit organization that has helped kids across the country create and maintain more than 60 vegetable gardens, which have yielded thousands of pounds of fresh produce to feed people in need.

As a State Honoree, Katie also will receive $1,000 and an all-expense-paid trip in early May to Washington, D.C., for several days of national recognition events. During the trip, 10 of the State Honorees will be named America’s top youth volunteers of 2014.

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, conducted by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), represent the United States’ largest youth recognition program based exclusively on volunteer community service.

All middle and high schools in the U.S., along with all Girl Scout councils, county 4-H organizations, Red Cross chapters, YMCAs and affiliates of HandsOn Network, were eligible to select a student or member for a local Prudential Spirit of Community Award last November.

Two State Honorees—one middle and one high school student—plus a select number of Distinguished Finalists from each state and the District of Columbia were selected based on criteria such as personal initiative, effort, impact and personal growth.
