One of The Biggest Problems We Face
In Our Community
In just 2 years, winners of the Colored Rocks Prize have inspired, guided, advised and served as positive role models to more than 4500 middle school students at GA’s needs-to-improve schools AND have successfully improved upwards of 200 students at GA high schools!
