A young man in Duluth is one of four national finalists for a humanitarian award from the NASCAR Foundation.
Michael Jackson has cerebal palsy. He's been working with the Starlight Foundation since he was a child.
It hooked him up with an online program to interact with other kids like him, called Starbright World.
"It's a place where we can connect, and have something in common. It has given me so much, and I want to give back to the foundation," Michael said.
He already has by being a finalist in the Betty Jane France Humanitarian award.
As a finalist he won $25,000 for the Starlight Foundation.
If he wins the entire contest, he will win another $100,000 for the foundation.
You can vote for him online until November 29th at www.NASCAR.COM/award
