Congratulations to Joseph Burgum and all the great young leaders in our area that have helped “Fill the Dome”. Here’s Parade Magazine’s video with Joe and Grace Li two of the young service leaders chosen for this award.

See some of the incredible story of “Fill the Dome” here.  Area youth are organizing for this years event again, let’s break the record for donated food and cash to help fill the shelves for area food banks.

Here’s some of the background and a neat behind the scenes video about these cool Parade community service awards:

Miranda Cosgrove: ‘Everybody Can Make a Difference’

AUGUST 14, 2011

These days, the “good stuff” starts with her work for St. Jude, where she visits patients and assists in fund-raising. “They tell you to give back because it helps other people, but you also get a lot out of it.” It’s a sentiment she shares with winners Grace Li and Joe Burgum. Thanks to her charitable efforts, Cosgrove was asked by generationOn, the youth service division of the nonprofit Points of Light Institute, to speak at a March gala honoring President George H.W. Bush. (PARADE joined with generationOn to pick this year’s All-America Service Team.)

Watch an exclusive video featuring Miranda, Grace, and Joe, and go behind the scenes of their photo shoot:
