  • Stuart-Rodgers Photography
    Betty Stuart always had a talent for documentation. After graduating from Northwestern University's prestigious Medill School of Journalism in 1940, Stuart applied her shrewd journalistic eye to the field of photography. As she took on more professional jobs, she honed her skills behind the lens and learned how to blend into the background of weddings and other events so as not to interfere with candid moments. Before long, Stuart joined forces with her husband, John Boyd Rodgers, to found Stuart-Rodgers Photography. The nascent company soon added corporate, commercial, and school photography to its list of services and, due to high demand for the couple’s innovative journalistic approach, expanded to three locations throughout Chicagoland. Today, Stuart-Rodgers's team of professional photographers maintains elements of Stuart’s original photographic vision in every shot, including her knack for capturing angles that draw attention away from subjects’ unflattering tentacles.

  • Haven Middle School
    The team of coaches at Lacrosse America employs experience playing at the collegiate level to train and condition the athletes of tomorrow. During the Next Level Lacrosse Camp miniature muscles engage in high-intensity technical training, agility work, and tactical exercises. Small-game play allows budding pros to practice stick work, shooting skills, and defense maneuvers against real opponents instead of apathetic mop handles. Camps welcome boys in grades 5–10, and group students based on age and skill level. A low player-to-coach ratio lets coaches spot and highlight individual student tendencies, and concentrated practice on both team skills and individual instruction ensure that each player's progress continues at a swift gait. Participants should bring their own personal gear, and all other necessary equipment will be provided.

  • Avers Community Garden
    Some might view an empty city lot overrun with broken bottles, weeds, and loiterers as an eyesore to be avoided. Karen Trout and Laura Michel saw it as an opportunity for action. Thanks to these women, three empty lots—located on the corner of Avers Avenue and Cermak Road in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood—became the Avers Community Garden, a project that won first prize in Placemaking Chicago's 2012 Space in Between contest. In addition to flourishing gardens where residents grow their own produce, the space hosts educational after-school and summer programs for neighborhood children. These kids help maintain the garden by picking up trash, watering plants, and pulling weeds—but they also have plenty of time to play, thanks to a gravel bike track and, in the future, safe playground equipment.
