This spring, Choose2Matter sponsored the Quest2Matter, which challenged students to take action to change our world.

Despite this being the first Quest, its short duration, and its coming at the end of the year, more than 100 inspiring quests were submitted.

Today, the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences announced that Mallory Fundora, founder of Project Yesu, will be the honoree for Student Initiative at the 2013 Bammy Awards in Washington, D.C.!

Mallory has raised tens of thousands of dollars to provide food, medicine and education to orphans in Uganda; it all started when she decided she no longer wanted Christmas presents for herself, but instead wanted funds used to support those in need.
