The Most Reverend George J. Rassas, Vicar for Vicariate I in the Archdiocese of Chicago, recently presented teens from The St. Anne Catholic Community in Barrington, Illinois with the Youth Leadership Award for their involvement in the Nothing But Nets campaign.  

The teens launched the Nothing But Nets campaign in their community by presenting the devastating effects of malaria and the life-saving solutions to an audience of several thousand people.  In the following months, the community responded by generously contributing to the Campaign.  The presentation included a skit with children dressed like mosquitoes, volunteers sleeping under a bed net, and a resounding challenge to the audience to take part in the Nothing But Nets Campaign!
