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.
