Young Futurists 2013: Introducing the Honorees

 Knowledge is the Key to your Future
"...  Charles Orgbon, a 16-year-old futurist from Dacula, Ga., who founded the environmental organization Greening Forward. "With the right support, young people can do anything." ...The young men and women who make up the 2013 class represent the true promise of our country's future. There's Michael Tubbs, a 22-year-old Stanford University graduate who ran for his hometown of Stockton, Calif.'s City Council -- and won -- after seeing his cousin fall victim to youth violence. And Trinity Russell, a high schooler from Long Island, N.Y., who discovered key behavioral differences between laboratory-raised and wild fruit flies; her findings have major implications for researchers who use the insects in their experiments. Or Thekia Cheeseborough, a Spelman College student from Jacksonville, Fla., who, inspired by the struggles of her own young parents, created a program that connects teen moms to academic and career resources." - The Root
