Perrymont Elementary School students took home first place for Marketing in the Mini Economy Market Day competition in March with their product “Monster Mash Glove.”
Schools from all around the area competed in the event, which was held at Lynchburg College. Area business leaders judged the products.
Perrymont’s 21st Century Community Learning Center students created their product during their after school program as part of a way to learn about entrepreneurship, advertising, marketing, and production. They were required to develop the product from infancy.
