Broccoli, beets, turnips, sprouts, spinach, cauliflower and more fill the bins at City Greens Market's bright and colorful storefront on Manchester Avenue in St. Louis.

With a $6,300 grant from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, several families will grow food to sell at the nonprofit market. Also, herbs locally grown are coveted by restaurants which pay top-dollar.

Two students from the archdiocese used their artistic talent for a good cause in entering the 2016-17 Catholic Campaign for Human Development Multimedia Youth Contest.

Mission accomplished.

Cor Jesu sophomore Kelly Beekman won the grand prize for her song, "One of Millions." Fellow Cor Jesu sophomore Emma Mohrmann won third place in the grades 10-12 division for her artwork, "It Takes 17 Muscles to Smile." They were among the five national award winners in the contest.
