Justin Deffenbacher received the youth social justice service award in his church's eight-state region for co-founding an ecology club run by and for youth. When he was a member of a community service group in his school called Project Citizen, his idea of providing healthier foods in the schools was chosen by club members and his group was among several that presented their projects to Governor Dave Heineman. He enjoys volunteering for service projects, especially prairie restoration and preservation.
Alexis Deffenbacher joined the youth ecology club in her church when it was first formed and signed up for various projects including selling Fair Trade chocolates, making posters to educate church members about Fair Trade, and volunteering for the club's "Adopt-a-Trail" cleanup at Standing Bear Lake.
