MEET OUR FINALISTS:

 

ROSA Es ROJO

Rosa Es Rojo is making wellness and cancer prevention accessible for the Latinas in America, starting in North Texas. The “Rojo” Way allows Latinas to grow and flourish by equipping them with the resources to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Rosa Es Rojo believes that the effects of a positive and healthy outlook on life are contagious and go beyond matters of health.

The Welman Project

77% of classroom materials are purchased by teachers using their own money, while 71% of what goes in our landfills could actually be reused or recycled instead. The Welman Project tackles these two big issues by distributing surplus materials from businesses for creative reuse in the classroom. Fill a classroom, not a landfill!

The Taste Project

One of every six Americans faces the reality that they may not be able to provide for their next meal. We believe everyone should have access to healthy nutritional food.  Our vision is to see our community heed the call to battle and stand on the front lines against hunger.
