Digitelling “Theme Contests”
There will be ongoing story contests around discussion themes with unique prizes to mark your experience.

“Pay it Forward” Digitelling Contest

  • The stories begin with Freedom Rider Mr. Jones and Charlotte business owner Mr. Corley, the authors of an upcoming book “Black Eyes/White Eyes.”  They tell an amazing story of how they crossed paths as youths.  The story has an interesting twist about who “Corley” is and how he impacted a Westside member.
  • All People can eat in Charlotte restaurants and ride desegregated buses because of Jones, but he thanked his Dad for making it all happen.

Harvest Moon Grille

Check Out Harvest Moon Grille’s “Farm to Fork Story” and their Amazing Menu!

Tell your story on Facebook or in 2-3 minute video format for You Tube to win a symbolic Freedom Ride and walk “through the front door” together of the Historic Dunhill Hotel and the Harvest Moon Grille. Lots of paparazzi…

Police Academy Simulation Experience

Look Out for our “Securing the Compound” Leadership digitelling contest and Action Prize: Simulation Center Training at the Police Academy.

Enter to win a shoot out with simulated bad guys.  You, your friend and Chief Harris will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience …just don’t shoot the little old lady decoy.
