Anna Lowe, a second-grader at Crenshaw Christian Academy, won the poster contest, while a number of different projects contributed to the Civic Development award.

Work at the Crenshaw Cultural Plaza, Douglas Park, Crenshaw Hospital Courtyard and Emmaus Cemetery Memorial Garden helped the club attain that award.

At the Deep South District level, Lowe also won the poster contest and the club placed third in the community action category.
