Students at Northern Bedford County High School were recently introduced to The Challenge Program, Inc. during a kick-off assembly at their school. The assembly theme was Future Influencers: #WhyNotMe. This fun assembly featuring a powerful video outlining how the Program works, reveals to students the positive outcomes to the important choices they make every day for career-readiness and success both in and beyond the classroom and how to earn cash incentives.
During the assembly, students in the sophomore, junior, and senior classes were introduced to local career opportunities. Throughout the year, they will be eligible to compete for financial awards in five areas linked with academic and workplace success: Attendance, Academic Improvement, Academic Excellence, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and Community Service. The business partner for Northern Bedford County High School during the 2019-2020 school year is Corle Building Systems.
At the end of the assembly, five juniors and five seniors from Northern Bedford County High School received awards for the work they accomplished last year during the 2018-2019 school year in the five above-mentioned categories, sponsored by Corle Building Systems.

The Engineering by Design Club has been selected as a state winner for the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest. Mr. Craig Curfman is the teacher advising team members Maurizio Amato, Carson Foor, Kahleb Horton, Max Summers, Joe Summers, Bentley Zimmerman, and Ian Zimmerman. The team developed a way that a radio-frequency identification transponder can activate solar-powered warning lights to alert motorists a school bus is stopped ahead. With the state level win the team will receive $20,000 worth of technology and a change of winning a $100,000 grant.
The contest was entered by submitting an application in the fall. In December, state finalists were selected to submit an activity plan. The team now will submit project videos by February 15th. Ten national finalists will attend a pitch even where they demonstrate their prototype before a panel of judges in April. Three national winners will be selected.
Congratulations Engineering by Design Club! You make us Panther Proud!
