Chester Makes Chester Award:
The Chester Makes Chester Award is annually presented to 3-4 Chester residents who
embody Chester pride. The recipients are chosen by city officials for their personal
accomplishments as well as their commitment to bettering the community. Past recipients
have included Bilal Nichols, who was drafted to the Chicago Bears, NBA Veteran Jameer
Nelson, and nationally-recognized music producer Orlando “Jahlil Beats” Tucker.
Finding Miss Ashley Stewart:
Finding Ashley Stewart 2018 stopped in multiple cities across the country, identifying
regional winners in Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Harlem, Philadelphia, Richmond
and through an online contest. Each stop included a fashion show, a sip n’ shop experience
and a search for the "diva" who embodies Ashley Stewart and everything the brand stands
for: kindness, perseverance, resilience, confidence and empowerment. 17,000 digital
entries and one million votes were cast before the winner was ultimately crowned at the
event and won a $10,000 prize package, a new Ashley Stewart wardrobe, makeover, tour-
sponsored gift prizes, a photo shoot, and participation in features across Ashley Stewart
media platforms for one year.
Finding Ashley Stewart is sponsored by Creme of Nature, with additional financial and
marketing support from JP Morgan Chase, Facebook, Salesforce, Lyft, Verizon, Dotcom
Distribution, RetailMeNot, and more.
