11 kids who impressed us in 2011

The best part of our job — hands down — is meeting so many great kids on Long Island. There are thousands! Throughout 2011, we’ve interviewed preschoolers to high schoolers. They’ve told us about trying to raise money for those less fortunate, attempts to stop bullying, how they try to make their peers laugh, and more. Take a gander at some of the kids we loved this year.
