CosmosGIRL! and BONNEBELL Award Grants

LAS VEGAS - CosmoGIRL! and BONNEBELL recently teamed up for a cross-sectoral partnership with Youth Service America to award $500 grants for health and fitness projects developed by young women. Winners included 23-year-old Jenny M. Lin, a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology living in Cambridge MA, and Evelyn Garcia, a 20-year-old student at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

Lin and Garcia were picked for their inspiration and leadership roles in creating health and wellness projects that motivate people to lead healthier lifestyles. Lin developed the idea to form her own "Boston Buddies Fitness Program," which enhances physical activities for people with mental disabilities. Garcia created a program called "My Life" in Clark County, Nevada to educate youth on the consequences arising emerging from sexual intercourse, such as pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
