These Saucon girls and their idea finished 17th out of 77.

Saucon Valley High School students Emily Ackerman, Laura Gombocz, Sophia Israel and Alex Youse participated in the First Annual Husky Dog-Pound Challenge at Bloomsburg University on Tuesday, April 18.  The students are members of Kim Flueso’s high school Entrepreneurship class.

The Dog-Pound Challenge is a state-wide entrepreneurship competition where students come up with unique ideas and develop them.  The competition was made available for current Bloomsburg University students, Bloomsburg Alumni, Bloomsburg area community members and high school students from across Pennsylvania.

Our Saucon Valley Super-Students made the cut and delivered a two minute “Shark Tank” like pitch of their creative product, DIGITAG!  This Digital Pet Tag is a pet accessory that gets attached to a traditional dog or cat collar.  Digitag offers a customizable LCD screen and GPS tracking capabilities to help reunite lost pets with their rightful owners.
