Trenton Health Team and contest judge La’Keisha Sutton (aka FanFavorite11) today awarded the final #WhyILikeTrenton photo contest prize to Foundation Academy seventh grader Dyshae Ramos for an image celebrating friendship.
“I really like the way this photo captured the energy and friendship among these girls,” said Sutton, a Trenton native and professional basketball player with the Harlem Globetrotters. “I’m all about positivity and being there for one another.”
Dyshae is among three winners in the first annual #WhyILikeTrenton photo contest on Instagram. THT ran the contest throughout April to share pride in our city by highlighting Trenton’s assets and talent. The contest attracted more than 50 photos, with prizes awarded for #MostLikes, as well as to favorite photos selected by local celebrities mural artist Leon Rainbow, lifestyle promoter Sino Lawery and Sutton.
Each winner received a $100 gift card and selected a Trenton-based nonprofit, school, or faith-based organization to receive an additional $100 donation from THT. Donations will be made to Trenton Cycling Revolution, Artworks and Foundation Academy.
