Ten year-old Zack Francom, who through a nonprofit he started raises money for wheelchairs for the needy by selling lemonade and cookies, has won a top spot in the State Farm Neighborhood Assist contest, earning his organization $25,000.

"We couldn’t have won without so many people helping us by voting each day during the contest," said Francom, who operates Zack’s Shack and lives in Provo.
