See all the entries in the video (in no particular order). Congrats to the winners and to all who participated! This is black history in the making! We are so proud of all those who entered and it was a hard decision for the judges who were “wowed” by the 19 incredible entries.

Each participant is welcome to attend the INVITE ONLY meet and greet with dreamer and entrepreneur Duke Turley Jr. of Dreams Take Work. Each participant will also receive a prize! Thanks to Rockford Construction for their partnership in this event.

And a special thanks to our judges who are residents from the neighborhood, and staff from AGR and Rockford Construction (Kim Williams not pictured in the group photo).
