Two of the Elite Ten Nationwide in Junior Achievement National Challenge are from Brevard Public Schools

Published on

Junior Achievement of the Space Coast is celebrating a significant achievement as two of its teams have been selected to compete in the prestigious Junior Achievement National Social Innovation Challenge in Washington, D.C. This competition, which focuses on encouraging students to develop innovative solutions to social issues, is a highlight for high school students interested in entrepreneurship and social change.

The two teams, Team Iskove from Bayside High School and Team GellyBuddies from Viera High School, are among the top ten teams nationwide invited to this challenge. They will be showcasing their innovative ideas, which have the potential to make a substantial impact on their communities and beyond.

The Junior Achievement National Social Innovation Challenge is part of Junior Achievement USA’s efforts to promote entrepreneurial thinking among high school students. Supported by Chick-fil-A, the competition provides students with the opportunity to receive national recognition and guidance from innovation experts and entrepreneurs to turn their ideas into reality. Past winning ideas have included eco-friendly products and social enterprises aimed at community improvement.

This event is a testament to the dedication and creativity of the students from Junior Achievement SpaceCoast, and it underscores the importance of fostering entrepreneurial skills and social awareness in young people. With only ten teams chosen from across the country, having two teams from Space Coast is a remarkable accomplishment that highlights the region’s commitment to excellence in education and innovation.
