Six students from NPSS recently travelled to Vancouver to compete in the 2016 Junior Achievement Innovation Jam. These students were the ones who you may have recognized in the hallways recently selling products from the Entrepreneur class. Last year, NPSS students placed in the top 10 out of 20 teams. This year, however, our students became finalists!!! In June, a second round of judges will announce which of the top three teams will take first place – $3000 cash + Be featured on The Next Big Thing! So help them gain support by ‘Liking’ their youtube video of their pitch on their “NPSS Junior Achievement” Facebook page!
