Students at Wilkinsburg High School were recently introduced to The Challenge Program, Inc. during a kick-off assembly at their school. During the assembly, student volunteers participated in a mock interview challenge to demonstrate how developing the right work habits and behaviors will set them apart from other jobseekers. Each interview question was linked with one of The Challenge Program, Inc.’s five award categories—Attendance, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Community Service, Academic Improvement, and Academic Excellence. Students will be eligible to compete for financial incentives in these categories throughout the school year. ShoeFitr, Inc. is the sponsor of the program at the school.
