NSSLHA’s Big Idea - 2nd PlaceDescription: P1030910.JPG

The UCM NSSLHA executive board entered the UCM’s Big Idea contest sponsored by the Entrepreneurial Innovation and Development Corporation.  They competed with other students on campus to develop an innovative product or service.  The idea they submitted was “Saturday Stories and Sandwiches” which would provide children from Head Start and the Warrensburg community a healthy lunch filled with reading activities to promote literacy.  UCM Graduate Students and NSSLHA officers Mallory Anning and Jayme Mattson presented a two minute pitch to the judges and were selected as one of the top ten.  They moved up to the next level as a top ten participant. They completed a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation to the judges and received 2nd place overall.  Congratulations Mallory & Jayme!  The second place prize was a Nikon camera, which will be utilized in the Welch-Schmidt Center for Communication Disorders.
