As a culmination to “Let’s Talk” month in October, the Tulsa Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy hosted a luncheon on Nov. 10 in downtown Tulsa to celebrate its third anniversary and honor Community Champion and Changemaker Award recipients.

Community Champion Awards were presented to Youth Services of Tulsa (YST) for their PregNot program and to the Tulsa Carrera Program.
