Radio Rookies' second workshop in Manhattan was held at the Grand Street Settlement, located right under the Williamsburg Bridge in Manhattan's Lower East Side. The Grand Street Settlement provides residents of the LES community with the tools and support they need to overcome challenges and build productive lives and futures. These stories were part of a series that were awarded the Sigma Delta Chi Public Service Award, a RTNDA/UNITY Award, a NFCB Golden Reel Awards and were a runner-up for the Casey Medal.
