<<Micaela Haider is a senior at Minot High School, who has spent the last two years being active in a handful of school clubs.

She works at Barnes & Noble, and still finds time for community and church activities, as well as school.

And she says that the more she puts herself out there, the more good opportunities come way.

(Micaela Haider, Magic City Campus High School) "I really just think it's so important for students to be involved. When I was a freshman and sophomore, I wasn't as involved in school. And I think the atmosphere here at Magic City really allows all the students to find their place, and I definitely have found mine."

The youngest of the thirteen character award nominees is Makiah Frederick.

Makiah is a seventh grader at Our Redeemer's Christian School, and is involved in church groups, helping her dad who is hard of hearing, and worked with flood victims, including family that was affected.

(Makiah Frederick, Our Redeemer's Christian School) "It was a little hard to see all the people going through a tough time. And my grandma and grandpa were a part of that, so it was kind of tough for them to go through that."

Finally, we meet Kendra Cruff, a sophomore who's also from Our Redeemer's.

Kendra has been part of mission trips, Feed My Starving Children, and teaching bible school to young students.

She says that small acts of kindness are sometimes what go the farthest.

(Kendra Cruff, Our Redeemer's Christian School) "I think just being caring toward everyone, and not judging or hating. And being supportive of their decisions, and helping them out when they need it.">>
