By Jay Michaels

Twin Falls, ID - The winner of last year's Jefferson Award is making a big splash for teen magazine readers.

Hosanna Kabakoro, 17, of Twin Falls also won the award for 'Miss Idaho Teen USA' Last year.

This time around, she made the cover of Memphis, Tennessee–based 'Justine' Magazine, which featured real girl scouts.

Kabakoro talks about the founder of the magazine, “She started a magazine that could encourage and empower young women to look more on the inside of what they do, and get more involved in their communities, and to get more involved in clubs and organizations.”

She says 'Justine' Magazine encourages young women with the viewpoint that it's not how you look that's important, but what you do.

She says the other girls featured in the article are also making differences in their communities.
