Family Finds A New Home and Renewed Hope In Chapel Hill

In early January, Shannon Greene and his family moved to Chapel Hill searching for refuge after a house fire and a motorcycle accident left the family of four searching for somewhere to call home. While nothing has come easy, with a little help and a lot of faith, the Greene’s have found a new home and a renewed sense of hope.

Of those, six photojournalists will be chosen to compete in the program’s National Photojournalism Championships in San Francisco, along with winners in the writing and broadcast news competitions.
