North Side hosted a Food Truck Throw Down event sponsored by EverFi and TPG. 36 business students took part in creating a food truck, business name, budgeting, creating a menu, location, potential customers, and what would be the most popular item. Six teams competed against each other with the help of TPG volunteers. They were then judged by TPG volunteers for 1st and 2nd place.
The North Side FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) chapter is partnering with the March of Dimes to help raise awareness and funds to support families and save babies’ lives.
FBLA students will have a purple March of Dimes bucket that they will be collecting change with. At the end of the month we will donate these funds to the March of Dimes. This money will go to help fight premature birth, which is the #1 killer of babies, and honoring the 15 million babies worldwide who are born too soon every year.
Last year North Side donated $300 to this wonderful cause. Let’s try to do the same this year and donate a little extra. All it takes is your pocket change.
