Congratulations to the Sanborn Central mixed ensemble that participated in the vocal contest yesterday on receiving an excellent rating on their performance.  You represented yourselves and your school well!

Congratulations to Austin Schmit & Alex Wormstadt on winning the South Dakota Bankers Foundation 2018 Business Plan Competition!  The duo presented their plan, "Double A Calf Boxes", to a panel of 6 judges that were made of up of a USD Professor, Bankers, and Government officials.  They competed against 5 other finalists from around the state.  The two fabricated a prototype with the aid of a plasma cutter (Thanks Jeff Wormstadt) and created an innovative product that led to their success.  They took home a prize of $1,500 and were congratulated by many members of the state legislature and cabinet members.  They represented Sanborn Central well in this great accomplishment.
