The Best News of 2011

From cool girls to projects and organizations that are changing the world, our favorite news of 2011 was the happy kind! Here are five of our choicest stories:  Teen Art Gallery. Audrey Banks, 17 (pictured, center), and her team help other teen artists fulfill big potential.

 WeTopia. A really good use of your procrastinate-with-online-gaming tendencies -- this game actually gives back!

 GoYoung. Three girls are documenting world-changers under 30. Yes!

 I Have Sex. Access to information via Planned Parenthood is always a good thing, and we applaud this student video in support of the organization.

 The Bully Project. There have been a few amazing anti-bully initiatives this year, and this documentary will further them all.
