Congratulations to Blaine Tewahade, Chris Rolfsmeier, Thomas Kaus and Blake Hinman who placed 3rd in the state in the Find Your Genius Challenge! The “Find Your Genius Challenge” is a state-wide contest over a 7-day period competing through virtual internships.  These students partnered with Goodwill of Nebraska and Symphony Workforce to devise a service or product which helps alleviate the emotional or mental distress young people regularly face. These students developed a website that provided a two-fold solution: 1.) It  focused on educating students to recognize signs of distress not only in themselves but also recognizing it in others. 2.) Once recognized, methods to alleviate stress and/or how to seek help. Students worked with advisors from Goodwill of Nebraska and local mental health professionals. Their work was recognized by Symphony Workforce and earned them the 3rd place award.
