Super Girl

This kid is on a mission! When she was 7, Brooklyn Wright wrote The Adventures of the Earth Saver Girl. In the book, a girl learns she has the power to rid the Earth of litter. Brooklyn created a costume and skit to go along with her book. Now 10, she has visited more than 100 schools to teach students about pollution. Last year, she received for her work a Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes. "It makes me feel great," she told TFK. "Like I'm doing my part to help."
