Every year the competition gets stronger because the coaching and talent gets better. What is really exciting is that some of our gifts are still being discovered! A special thanks to (1) our students for their passion, work ethic, and courage; (2) our coaches, including Seth Getz and our CFL Incubator alums (Grace, Jessica, Macall, Matt, Russell, Sam), who engage, inspire, and push us forward; (3) our guests, who visit us and share their stories and listen to ours; and (4) our judges who give us wise advice. Because of their good work, we all win. Thanks to all!
