Students at four CMSD high schools will receive $1,000 grants for proposals that help address health and wellness problems in their schools or communities.
The schools were among 10 that were announced as winners after participating in a five-hour workshop that UnitedHealthcare and GENYOUth’s AdVenture Capital hosted at Case Western Reserve University.
The CMSD schools and their projects included:
United HealthCare employees volunteered to mentor the students as they designed their concepts and developed the pitches they made to judges.
AdVenture Capital is a social entrepreneurship program of GENYOUth, a nonprofit organization dedicated to child health and wellness.
