Kid stuff? Hardly.

June 8, 2011 | 12:58 pm

Each year, we profile a group of “outstanding high school seniors” culled from the many nominations sent in by you, our readers. And each year, we find it almost impossible to decide between the many extraordinary leaders, givers and enormously talented graduating teens.

But, choose we did. And, once again, the members of this year’s group know no limits in their quests for excellence and impact. They staged rallies to protest public school budget cuts, raised thousands of dollars for Israel, built homes in the hurricane-devastated South, became leaders in the global fight against AIDS, and mobilized colleagues to fight for the release of Israeli prisoner Gilad Shalit. They found their passions — debate, violin, fashion design, robotics, drama, art — and harnessed them to inspire others.

Just imagine what they’ll do as adults.
