A Utah high school senior entered a contest to win a car, but her winning wasn’t the biggest surprise. Instead of keeping the prize, she gave it to someone who she thought needed it more.
Jessica Faasavalu’s English teacher asked her to enter an essay on ‘Why You Need a New Car’ into a yearly contest held by the school. The winner would receive 2007 Mazda 3 from Bountiful Mazda.
Faasavalu, however, already had her own car.
As Faasavalu began writing she decided she couldn’t submit her entry on her own behalf.
