If you need to be cheered up a/o your hope in humanity restored.....this is a great story.

Student wins the Compton High School free throw contest ($40k) decides to split the winning money with the seven other finalists.  


The event - a foul-shooting contest for top academic students at Compton High School in Los Angeles - was created with a simple premise: Organizers wanted to show the kids at Compton how to create community spirit with college scholarship money as the incentive.........

"I've already been blessed so much and I know we're living with a bad economy, so I know this money can really help my classmates," he said in a release from the school. "It was the right decision."
