This summer a group of local youth participating in an entrepreneurial camp will be using some upgraded technology thanks to 15-hundred dollar grant.
Connie Unruh (UN-roo) is a Financial Literacy Coordinator with the T-S Institute, which is a non-profit, educational arm of First National Bank in Clinton. She explains they host summer camps for local youth interested in business education.
According to Unruh, a major project of the camp involves students shooting video for commercials. She says past results were a little lacking due to technological limitations, so they applied for and received a grant from the Prairie Foundation.
Unruh notes a unique aspect of the grant is that it's awarded by students...
The T-S Institute's entrepreneurial camps for students take place in June. In the meantime, you can learn more about the organization by visiting www.tsinstitute.org.
