The seventh-grade class at St. Rose of Lima is participating in the Project Empower 2012 BOSS Competition. In this competition, students will work in teams to create a new product for a company. Students are responsible for the research, marketing and design of their product. Projects will be presented at a final competition at the school and may be eligible for a top prize. Miss New York 2011, Kaitlin Monte, came to St. Rose of Lima on April 19 to explain the program to the students and help with their initial work.
