Junior Achievement students, Max Barnard, Pa Lor, Raul Lazcano, Zainab Mohamed, and Hlou Yang placed third at the JA Regional Competition. They went up against ten teams - tying with Maple Grove in the Regional JA Company of the Year. Each of the five students presenting received a $250 scholarship for a college of their choice. 

The two teams from Mounds View took first and second place. The first place team developed APP's for teaching elementary students Spanish and sold it to surrounding elementary schools. The second place team from Mounds View created an APP for students to find their buses and APPs for school activities. Maple Grove made college booklets for students.
Edison students made kits for homeless families and grossed $532. We had the best display and the students knocked it out of the park on their presentation
