The Power of Children Awards (POCA) program was established in 2005, and this tenth anniversary book celebrates the 50 winners during that time.

50 young trailblazers, educators, and helpers are profiled; describing the projects that led to their awards.  POCA winners embraced their causes and marched into the unknown with their hearts open, intent on making a difference, one person and one cause at a time.  They raised money, inspired hundreds of volunteers to join their causes, and persevered even when their own families did not quite understand why they were doing what they were doing.  They met celebrities, politicians, and presidents, and they started companies, launched websites, and established nonprofit foundations.  Through it all, they remained true to a common goal: to make a difference in someone else's life.  

Inserts with profiles of the winners since publication are included.
