2019 BIG Idea Finalists Announced!

After many hours of work by several students creating entries and several judges scoring those entries, we are excited to announce the 2019 BIG Idea Finalists!  These finalists will give their verbal presentations to our final judging panel on December 11th, and the winners will be determined that same day.  They’ll also get to hear from Phil Zuckerman, the successful owner of Applewood Books, Inc.  Our 2019 category winners will be announced next week.
