Forty high-school students from Fresno, Clovis and Mariposa County will gather Wednesday for Junior Achievement's third annual Social Innovation Camp.
The camp is a one-day event in which students learn about social entrepreneurship. Teams identify a problem and create a new business idea to solve it. The two highest-scoring teams will present their ideas Oct. 5 at the Big Fresno Fair, where public votes will determine which team's members will receive scholarships.
Schools participating in the camp from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. are Clovis, Clovis East, Clovis West and Buchanan from the Clovis Unified School District; Duncan, Edison, Roosevelt and Sunnyside from Fresno Unified School District; CART in Clovis; and Mariposa County. The camp, sponsored by Pacific Gas & Electric Co., is being held at Fresno Pacific University.
