The Summer Youth Business Grant Program recently wrapped up the summer by recognizing their young leaders with some treats and a chance to showcase their business. Three winners were selected to receive additional funds to continue their business. Adele Mitchell, JonMichael Weaver and Savannah Martinez each received additional awards to make additions to their programs.
The top winner JonMichael, a LAHS Senior and the owner if Buddy’s beans received $350 and will continue on to a regional competition called Start Up in September at the Los Alamos Science Fest. Check out his Buddy’s beans, locally roasted coffee on Facebook. The event was sponsored by the LACDC, the LANS Community Programs Office and the Feynman Center, UNM-LA and Champions of Youth Ambitions (C’YA).
