The Edwin P. Hubble Medal of Initiative was presented to PJ Haarsma, Denise Gary, and Nathan Fillion for their work in founding Kids Need to Read to provide literacy resources to disadvantaged children and adolescents throughout the United States. The award is Marshfield, Missouri's highest honor and is presented annually to those who have shown great initiative in their lifetime. The award and accompanying dinner is named in honor of Marshfield's native son and namesake of the Hubble Space Telescope, Edwin Powell Hubble (1889-1953).
