Five local social good projects won $5,000 each at last weekend’s ReGenerate Philly Summit, a conference that brought together millennials — 20- and 30-somethings — to discuss how to shape Philadelphia’s future.

ReGenerate Philly was organized by Washington, D.C.-based Mobilize.org, which focuses on engaging millennials and has held more than a dozen conferences in cities like Charlotte, N.C., San Jose, Calif., Miami, Fla. and Detroit, Mich. Mobilize.org chooses cities based on “where millennial civic engagement was low or where [it] had the most connections and could make the biggest difference,” said spokeswoman Nicole Woods. The organization is backed by the Knight Foundation.

Eighteen projects vied for a piece of the $25,000 award money, one year of space at 3rd Ward‘s HUB coworking space and additional support from Mobilize.org. The winners were:
