For the second year, Mr. Kline has required his students to create proposals for the Glockner sponsored Dare to Dream contest. This a "pitch" contest, similar to Shark Tank, where students come up with an idea, research how to make it a reality, then, present the pitch to a group of judges (one of whom was a successful candidate of Shark Tank). This year's winners are: 1st Place: M. Calvin, M. Dixon, I. Chapman and J.Dickey; 2nd Place: J. Josey, I. Kelley, D. Jordan, L. Carter and H. Yeradi; Third Place: H. Martin, J. Harris, K. Perry; Fourth Place: T. Queen, D. Clark, L. Howell, K. Davis. The top four teams will advance to a state semifinal at Shawnee tomorrow and then possibly compete in the the tr-state finals at Shawnee on March 30th. Click here for more images.
