Congratulations to the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Challenge Winners!

Congratulations to Elizabeth, Holly, Zach and John of Team Growing the North for winning the GPRC 2019 Innovation and Entrepreneurship Challenge! Both teams put on an excellent performance in front of our panel of judges yesterday – here are some highlights in photos.

First-year engineering students Zachary Fournier, Teigan Scott and Caitlin Peebles present their improved design for a piece of diagnostic equipment at the NBDC.

The winning team received a $3,000 prize and (even more valuable?) the chance to develop skills, build professional connections, boost their resumes, and kick their education at GPRC into high gear.

Thank you to our students all our partners, sponsors and supporters who made the challenge possible. We’re so proud of what our students have accomplished and what they continue to accomplish!
