The judging will be based on several criteria, including family

structure. We're looking to honor a black family consisting of a married mother and father living in the same household with their children. Additional points will be given for trans-generational relationships. So tell us how the extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins help make this a strong black family. Be sure to include a family photo!
