It felt great to be back.  Thank you to all the volunteers, families and kids who made this our best celebration yet.  All of the projects were amazing and just getting to the finish line is a victory.  We’re so proud of everyone.  The winners are:

  1. A Day at the Zoo by The Science Group!! from New City School
  2. Ice Cream Party by the Waffle Cones from New City School
  3. Team Herbert Hoover from Herbert Hoover – Boys & Girls Club of Greater StL

We at Project Make-It know that our community is our strength. We work with a diverse student population, and as such, we stand strong against racism. We add our voice to the chorus calling for real racial equality in this country. At Project Make-It, we promote equity in STEM education and offer after-school opportunities for the students of our community. We recognize that this isn’t a moment, but is in fact a movement, and we say unequivocally that Black Lives Matter. Project Make-it stands with those who are fighting for change.

AT&T announced their $1,000,000 giving campaign for StL called “AT&T Believes”.  Governor Parsons, Mayor Krewson, County Executive Sam Page, etc. all local leaders attended.  AT&T’s Midwest President,  Craig Unruh, (in his speech) referenced AT&T Believes’ partnership with Project Make-It as an example AT&T already making positive impact in St. Louis.   Thank you, AT&T Believes, your support makes a huge difference.
