Taco's "I Believe in RI" Contest

First Place Winner
Ernie Germani

I BELIEVE IN RI BECAUSE:
"...it is tremendously under-rated. It is a beautiful state, from
the architecture of Providence to the sands of the Atlantic,
from the woods of Exeter to the shores of the Bay."
 
 
Second Place Winner
Elizabeth Duvivien

I BELIEVE IN RI BECAUSE:
"...of the architecture, commitment to locally sourced food,
creative community and beaches!"



Third Place Winner
Frank Lattore

I BELIEVE IN RI BECAUSE:
"...of its people – salt of the earth, gritty, resourceful – and
for 375 years celebrating diversity as one of our
greatest strengths."
