Two seniors from McKeesport Area High School won $2,000 in seed capital for their business Made in the Shade, in the 5th Annual George W. Tippins Annual Business Plan Competition. Their business will help those who are color-blind with a durable iron on tag designed to indicate primary color clothing.
The winners, Keena Simmons and Ryah Gadsen will get the money and additional support to create their product over the summer.
The competition is sponsored by Entrepreneuring Youth that works with academically at-risk youth.
