Four Northview High School students enrolled in the Jobs for America's Graduates program recently competed in the second JAG Indiana Career Development Conference in Indianapolis.

Approximately 280 students from 56 Indiana high schools participated in the day-long event, which included a series of competitions in 10 categories and also three one-hour seminars on leadership and skill building.

Senior April Knox placed first in Creative Problem Solving, receiving a $750 college scholarship.

Knox worked with six other students from different high schools to solve a theoretical problem relating to a school issue.

Others competing in the event from Northview included Jacob Harden (Cover Design and Career Display), Iain McCoy (Poster Design and Public Speaking), and Robert Muncie (Employability Skills).

JAG is a program funded by the state to help students to be better prepared to enter the work force upon high school graduation.

Applications are now being accepted for the program for the 2010-11 school year. Interested students should contact their guidance counselor or Northview JAG specialist Sarah Thomas.
