The Children’s Defense Fund will hold the 2012 Beat the Odds awards ceremony to celebrate and honor five inspiring young people from the Washington, D.C., area with a scholarship to attend college. These five students have overcome tremendous challenges to beat the odds and excel academically. Each student receives a $10,000 scholarship, laptop computer, guidance through the college admission process, and an invitation to join CDF’s leadership training programs—putting them on the path to college and successful adulthood. The event will benefit Children’s Defense Fund programs including the Beat the Odds scholarship fund.
