Congratulations to our K12 winner, Boom Balm! With Deanna Mathis as their mentor, these girls brought their flu-fighting lip balm to the top of the competition.

All of Dalton Public School’s teams brought fantastic products and ideas to the pitch. Thank you to the school system for putting programs in place to foster our young entrepreneur’s spirits.
