I am pleased to announce that this year’s New York Challenge Grant winner is Judge Catherine M. Bennett. In as much as only one person applied for the grant, there is no runner-up.

The sole application for the grant doesn’t diminish the award. Judge Bennett has worked tirelessly on behalf of both New York and NAALJ and is deserving of the honor and our admiration.

New York extends its best wishes to everyone attending the NAALJ annual conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, and to the other Challenge Grant winners from all the participating affiliates.
