Jacqueline Means Awarded Outstanding Service by a Young American by Jefferson Awards

This week, 2020 Beau Biden Memorial Scholarship recipient and Miss Delaware’s Outstanding Teen Jacqueline Means was awarded the Multiplying Good Award for Outstanding Service by a Young American by Jefferson Awards.

The Multiplying Good Award is presented to individuals who “put others first [with] stories of extraordinary public service”.  The list of Jefferson Award recipients is vast, including hundreds of public and private national figures, and more than 63,000 “unsung heroes”, including the tens-of-thousands of young Americans doing good in their communities.

The Multiplying Good mission is to foster personal growth and leadership through community service and support.  Thousands of Delaware recipients each year are empowered and elevated through Multiplying Good’s training, service opportunities, and affiliation to a national award platform.  The organization states, “through our programs, people of all ages are discovering how they can positively impact the lives of those around them.  We unleash the potential in youth through service, leadership, and partner with organizations and corporations to recognize excellence in service”.

Multiplying Good Award: Outstanding Service to Young Women

Jacqueline Means was recognized for her outstanding service to young women and the Wilmington Community through the founding of the Wilmington Urban STEM initiative.  The initiative is designed to empower girls in her community and increase their interests in science, technology, engineering, and math through her education program and STEM activities.
