Launching Their Skills

News

Eight different Valley high schools came together at Ivy Tech today for the Jobs for America’s Graduates or JAG competitions.

Students in the program competed alongside one another using their abilities to build, manuever and think creatively about projects.

Students were launching candy out of catupults made with cans of soup, rubber bands and spoons.

“JAG Indiana is the biggest JAG state in the nation it’s kind of a graduation program for students who might need a push to get to graduation, the we have a follow up program after graduation to help students get to where they want to be,” Greg Lee, Manager of JAG said.

Today’s competition winners got monetary prizes. First place winners get 100 dollars and will move on to the state JAG competition in March. Second place winners get 75 dollars and third place with 50.
