ALC Engineering Design and Development students recently took home Audience Choice Award at the Student Innovator of the Year Competition. The competition was at BYU.
Students competed for over $6,000 in cash prizes awarded to first, second, and third place for the high school, junior high, and elementary divisions.
First place winners in each division won $1,000, second took home $600, and third place got $400 to keep working on their innovations.
For the competition, students worked several months on an idea using BYU’s innovation model “USERS.” The acronym stands for “understanding, shaping, exploring, refining, and sharing,” to identify problems and then create innovative solutions. Along with creating prototypes, students had to get feedback from other people about their innovation.

We are so proud of these students and the hard work they put into their projects.
