Stokes Community Freedom Charter School, Tyler Elementary and The Washington Middle School for Girls at The ARC.

Sponsors include: Nestle, Stouffers, Nestle Waters, Diageo, Wal-Mart, Abbott, American Beverage Association, Food Marketing Institute, Coca-Cola, National Turkey Federation, National Council of Chain Restaurants, National Retail Federation, Quicken Loans, Washingtonian, Acme Paper & Supply Co, Method-designs.com, Pamela’s Punch and The Tergis Group.
