You will never know if you don’t try.

Charlie Engelman, 23, a New Trier High School alumnus, said he thought he didn’t have a shot at winning a $50,000 grant through Expedition Granted, a contest hosted by National Geographic. But he pitched his dream expedition anyway, and to his surprise, he was selected as one of the top 10 finalists out of 700 entries.
