Nicole Cleland and Jessica Salgado

Not all the great ideas in the world come from adults.  Just ask any child. 

In essence, that's what The Future of Good project does... asking children to talk about their ideas for helping their communities. 

This year's national finalists include Nicole Cleland from Klamath Falls, who helps students combine the STEM skills with agriculture. 

And Jessica Salgado from Sutherlin helps students with disabilities take part in sports.  We meet them and hear details of their work.
