Word Gap Challenge Champion
Congratulations to our HRSA Bridging the Word Gap Challenge Champion, Háblame Bebé. For their considerable efforts, we awarded them a grand prize of $75,000.
We designed the Challenge to support innovative solutions, which will help parents and caregivers talk and engage more with young children. Our ultimate goal: putting all U.S. children on the path to success from an early age.
