NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- James Fallon, an Armonk resident who attends Iona Prep, is showing how he can make a difference.

Fallon finished in second place in the annual You Can Make A Difference poster contest run by The Christophers, a not for profit that aims to encourage people to make a difference in the world. More than 1,000 people across the United States submitted posters.

Fallon's poster recognizes the importance of working together to achieve a shared objective.  As one of the youth leaders at the Heavenly Productions Foundation, Fallon, has already headed several successful school supply drives delivering more than 7,300 backpacks. Fallon won $500 for finishing in second.

"Most recently I pledged 1,000 new children’s books to Victorious Academy in Rwanda," Fallon said. Each year, I write e-mails to my friends and family and raise money to purchase new backpacks and school supplies for kids in need. “I get such a great feeling when I go and give the backpacks and school supplies out. I believe even though I am a still a kid, I can make a difference in the lives of these kids.”
