Here’s a photo of Ryan Oelrich, winner of the Inlander’s Peirone Prize, for his work with at-risk youth and efforts at building community. Oelrich’s organization Spokane Sidewalk Games employs young people from Crosswalk, a teen homeless shelter, to run the games and gives the community an opportunity to play large sized versions of some of their favorite board games. http://www.inlander.com/spokane/ryan-oelrich/Content?oid=2866063
