Seventh Grade, Coconut Palm K-8 Academy
Washington, D.C. Trip Winner

Alexandra was enjoying a day at the Youth Fair when there came reports of a shooting and the crowd panicked and started running. This is when Alexandra noticed a young girl who got separated from her parents amidst the chaos. The little girl was scared and crying and Alexandra immediately grabbed her and went to hide until safety was established. She helped calm her down and was with her until police assisted in finding her parents. The reports of a shooting ended up being a false alarm but Alexandra did the right thing by taking action and making sure that this little girl felt safe during a very stressful and dangerous situation.
