Steps of Success youths recently placed first in the rural category at the third annual Youth Opportunity grant meeting in Tampa, Fla.

The short biography of the program's members, some of whom live in the Slabs near Niland and are highlighted in this film, stated they took great pride in bringing cultural awareness from a rural-site perspective.

Yesenia Martinez of Calipatria, Jason Graefen and Margaret Williams, both of Niland, Maria Mendiola of Brawley and video instructor Steve Mellow were the honorees.

The purpose of the contest was to encourage program members to include filmmaking as one of the activities at their center and to help youths to explore the genre as an art and as a possible career.
