Happy 2018, Everyone!

I want to share my gratitude for the incredible recognition Ecological Action has received from an organization working to foster a generation of “world-changers”.

In September, I was awarded the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes. The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes “celebrates inspiring, public-spirited young people from diverse backgrounds all across North America. Established in 2001 by author T.A. Barron, the Barron Prize annually honors 25 outstanding young leaders ages 8 to 18 who have made a significant positive impact on people, their communities, and the environment”

The other students I was selected along with are passionate and remarkable activists in so many fields. It is an humbling honor to be selected alongside such inspirational people as a 2017 winner. I am so eager to see how the amazing projects each of them leads continue to evolve and impact the world.

Please read their stories HERE and get involved with a project that strikes you!

To the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes: Thank you for supporting the contributions and endeavours of youth. I am incredibly humbled by and exceeding grateful for the work you do to recognize, reaffirm, and spread the word about youth taking action and following their hearts. I never anticipated that the projects I lead would reach so many people. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to not only share my story but for buoying my hope that our generation is capable of solving each and every one of the issues our world faces.

All my gratitude and appreciation,

Abigail Weeks
