The Children's Defense Fund's 22nd annual Beat the Odds award ceremony took to the Beverly Hills Hotel on December 6. The event honored five Los Angeles high school students who overcame personal obstacles and achieved academic excellence. To incorporate the teenagers into the night's visuals, the organizers used a gallery of black-and-white portraits as the backdrop for the stage. Art Arellanes produced the event; Revelry handled the scenic production and Richard Taylor provided the lighting design.
