We’ve got some great news to share!
Members of the JA of Lincoln staff just got back from the JA National Conference in Orlando, and they didn’t come home empty-handed! Junior Achievement of Lincoln was one of just five programs selected to receive the 2013 MetLife Foundation “Sowing the Seeds of Entrepreneurship” Award. It’s a big honor that comes with a big prize – a $10,000 grant! The money is specifically to support the new High Impact for Junior Achievers program, which will get underway this Fall in Lincoln Public Schools.
We’re thrilled and grateful that our focus on entrepreneurship is paying off, both for our organization and for the students we serve. Thanks to MetLife, our new program will help Lincoln’s high school students truly own their economic success!
