2022 Spring One World Challenge

Click here to see the 2022 Spring Challenge Program

Several 2022 students have told us that they felt like winners before they even stepped on stage to compete at the One World Challenge. They said they will cherish the friendships they’ve made with other students from across the city after living through the worst of the pandemic’s isolation. We’ve been impressed by how this group has taken nothing for granted and said thank you more than ever. We thank and appreciate them as much as any group we’ve ever served. See the list of winners!
