On May 30, 2019 six teams from Mispillion Elementary School competed in the Meaningful Economics and Entrepreneurship Competition at the Carter Center in Georgetown, DE. These teams were led by their coaches Mrs. Sharp, Mrs. Evans-Keesler, and Mrs. McKee.

The ME* Competition is a program designed to recognize student achievement in acquiring and applying knowledge in economics, entrepreneurship and personal finance. Each team participated in 3 events. In the production activity each team assembled products in a given amount of time. The products were judged in a variety of areas including following directions, neatness and product completion. Each team also took a written test to evaluate their knowledge of economics concepts. The third event was problem solving. Students designed a product to solve a given problem, created an advertising campaign and made a two-minute commercial which they presented before a panel of judges.
Our third grade team, Riley Carmean, Ben Walter, Ava Rothlisberger and Keture Mele placed 1st in test and 4th in production.

One of our 4th grade teams, Jack Meszaros, Olivia Eisenbrey, Brody Skinner and Ben Braga placed 4th in test and 3rd in problem solving. One 5th grade team, Sammy Hudson, Maureen O’Neill, Luke Hargraves and Christian Schimmel placed 3rd in problem solving. And our other 5th grade team, Emily Vadakin, Logan Short, Ty Mackert and Makenzie King placed 2nd in test.
