24 Hour Generator Program

Do you like to think outside the box? Do you work well under pressure? Do you love a challenge? If so, you are perfect for the 24 Hour Generator Program. Two students from each area high school will be selected to participate. They will be assigned to a team and given one pressing problem (i.e. cleaning the ocean's trash...) and then have 24 hours to solve it. Lots of fun and great on a college resume!
