High School Kids Get Shot At $5,000

This afternoon, 900 students from high schools across the region gathered for the Student Superpower Challenge.

Three teams of students could win as much as $5,000 to pursue innovative ideas that solve real-world problems in the categories of Our Town, Our People, Our Environment, Our School, and Our Style.

Olivia Wills is in high school at J.M.A Armstrong in Salisbury She tells CHSJ News she learned a lot about what's trending in the tech sector--particularly, that coding isn't just for "hackers" like one sees on TV and movies, but that it's simply about problem-solving.

Students have been challenged to find a real-world problem they want to solve and pitch it by April 30 to T4G, Brilliant Labs and Wicked Ideas.

The winners will be announced May 16th.
