Sophie Kartzman Named NY Distinguished Finalist


Horseheads Middle School 8th grade Sophie Kartzman has been named a New York Distinguished Finalist. 

Over 31,000 students were nominated this year for the 2017 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards honoring the top country’s youth volunteers. Only 234 were selected as honorees. 

13-year-old Sophie is being honored for her project that has provided over 40,000 cards for soldiers and veterans over these last three years, for encouraging youth volunteerism, and for engaging with the community. 

A representative will travel to Horseheads to award Sophie an engraved bronze medallion.
