Students in grades six, seven and eight have been working hard in their Young Entrepreneurs Club led by teachers Kerry Fial and Ryan Evarts to create their business plans this school year. Normally, a Young Entrepreneur Fair would take place for students and parents to see the completed project. This year, students presented their business plans to a panel of judges, just like the popular TV show, “Shark Tank.”

Grand Champion this year for their “Smoothie Stop” business plan was Marissa Frohne and Emma Knecht. Second place was Morgan Wiechman with her “Country In Town,” and third place went to “Retro Rewind” by Abigail Johnson and Halle Puffenberger.

Honorable Mentions went to “Fitt for Fun” by Adam and Noah Fitt; “Benevutti A Tutti” by Quinn Felbinger; “Wonders of the Animal Kingdom” by Lilly Hatt and Summer LoPresto; “Old Street USA” by Brody Bollinger, William Osborne and Liam Johnson; and “Talented Tails” by Gabbie Heilmann.
