Cumming 11-year-old one of Prudential's top Spirit of Community award winners in Georgia

By Ken Stanford Reporter

Max Rubenstein, 17, of Atlanta and Angelica Krubeck, 11, of Cumming have been named Georgia's top two youth volunteers of 2018 by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a 
nationwide program honoring young people for outstanding acts of volunteerism.

As state honorees, the pair will receive $1,000, an engraved silver medallion and an all-expense-paid trip in late April to Washington, where they will join the top two honorees from each of the other states and the District of Columbia for four days of national recognition events. During the trip, ten students will be named America’s top youth volunteers of 2018.  

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, now in its 23rd year, is conducted by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

Kubeck, a home-schooled sixth-grader nominated by Forsyth County 4-H, has combined two of her passions – science and helping kids – by providing science kits and conducting workshops for at-risk children in shelters, foster care and after-school programs through “Super Science Kids,” a nonprofit she founded two years ago.
