An advisory panel will award a second million-dollar
prize, based on the merits of a proposed project. Kiwanis proposes spending the money on its Key Leader camps for high school
students.

Kiwanis is the only Indiana-based organization among the 100 finalists chosen in December, Public
Relations Manager Jo Lynn Garing said. Other finalists with a national and local presence include the Susan G. Komen Breast
Cancer Foundation and American Cancer Society.
