GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich.-- Two 18-year-old students are among the winners of this year’s World Series of Innovation.
Joshua Kunnen and Jayson Vandyke, who attend the Kent Career & Technical Center, won the People’s Choice Award during last month’s international competition. Their challenge was to come up with a new product or service that addresses everyday opportunities. The two created IsePure All Natural Cologne. As part of their product pitch, Kunnen and Vandyke also created a 60 second commercial.
Kunnen and Vandyke will split $2,500 in cash, as well as a $200 Amazon gift card and other prizes.
More than 7,000 student teams entered the international competition; the other finalists were from the Washington D.C. and New York areas.
