Congratulations to Odessa High School FBLA
who took home the top prize for the 2017 Hundred Dollar Project!
This creative and determined team of high school freshmen managed to make a huge impact on their small community with only $100 to start. By making and selling hundreds of caramel apples at local events, the team quickly hit their goal of raising more than $1,000, increasing their profits tenfold. Then, with their earnings, these amazing teens teamed up to prepare and deliver 553 homemade meals to senior citizens throughout their community. The team plans to donate their $2,500 prize to the Odessa Healthcare Foundation.
