Cierra Little Water Fields, 14, of Fort Gibson and Erika Vinson, 18, of Warner were recently named distinguished finalists at The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards.

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is a nationwide program honoring students in grades 5-12 for outstanding volunteer service.

The awards program, now in its 19th year, is conducted by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

The program’s judges recognized 234 students nationwide as Distinguished Finalists for their impressive community service activities. Each will receive an engraved bronze medallion.

“We applaud each of these young people for their exemplary volunteer service,” Prudential Chairman and CEO John Strangfeld said in a media release. “They use their time and talents to make a meaningful difference in their communities, and we hope their example inspires others to do the same.”
