I'm so excited!
Leah Larson, the 17 yr. old founder of YALDAH Magazine, is a finalist in Wells Fargo's $100,000 "Someday Stories" contest!!
We have always known Leah is "a winner", but if/when she wins the prize, she'll be able to take YALDAH magazine, and its positive message, to the next level.
(Long time readers of this blog may remember how much my daughters and all their friends love this magazine.)
(Note: Registration requires a zip code. This is not meant to exclude those living outside the US, but rather, it is used to determine where the charitable donations (to Boys and Girls Clubs, Habitat for Humanity, or Junior Achievement) are to be distributed. If you live outside the US, you could use the zipcode for Leah's home town of Sharon, MA, which is 02067.)

UPDATES: Spreading the word!
Wow! Reese on the Radio (WRKO) generously and kindly mentioned Leah and YALDAH and the contest on-air, less than 14 minutes after I clicked "send" on an e-mail to him. I'm so impressed that he can keep up with e-mail while running his live call-in program! Maybe he can share a few productivity tips!
Many thanks to Maimonides School for mentioning Leah and the contest in their newsletter.
