CENTREVILLE - The goal of the Jacki Carter Young People Who Care Award, sponsored by the Queen Anne's County Council for Children and Youth, is to recognized young citizens who are and want to be community change-makers and help them in their mission to help others. This marks the second year for the award, and again this year, two winners have been selected.

 This year's first grant winner is Mason Heath, a junior at Queen Anne's County High School. Mason's project is to plan and coordinate a weeklong Vacation Bible School program in July at Boardly Chapel AME Church in Pondtown. His partner organization is the church. The Rev. Ellsworth Tolliver is pastor.

Mason's project mentor is his mother Celestine Heath. His committee mentor will be Chris Perkins.

The second grant winner is the brother and sister team of Jack and Grace Sweetak, both students at Queen Anne's County High School. Jack is a junior; Grace is a sophomore. Their project is to test curriculum for educational programs involving water, air and atmospheric monitoring at the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center. The project will take place from June through August. The partner organization is CBEC. Their project mentor is Judy Wink, executive director at CBEC. Their committee mentor will be Pennie Gill.

The Youth Award Committee was impressed with the detailed timelines and budgets included in the awardees applications. It is obvious a lot of time and effort has gone into the planning, and the committee is sure the projects will help make a positive impact in the community.
