About 20 students from Middletown High School and Appoquinimink High School competed at the annual Get S.E.T. Olympics in Wilmington on March 14.
The event, hosted by Junior Achievement of Delaware, allows students in the Foundations Program, each of whom are between the ages of 16 and 21 with moderate to severe learning challenges, to compete in contests that mirror the career skills they've gained at school and in the workplace.
