  • Middletown High School student Maya Young took top honors at Junior Achievement of Delaware's second-annual Career Challenge competition earlier this month, while two of her schoolmates rounded out the field of four finalists.
    Young beat out 49 other students in the competition, which was designed to help provide the skills needed to prepare for a job interview.
    The students competed in four elimination rounds that evaluated them on networking, interviewing and personal presentation skills. Students were assessed throughout the day by professional human resources volunteers from the Delaware Chapter of Society for Human Resources Management (DESHRM).
    By the fourth round, only four students remained to compete in the final interview challenge held in front of a panel of judges, as well as all the participating students.
    In addition to Young, the other finalists included Middletown High’s Kayla Griffin and Arnold Gibbs, as well as Joshua Ryan of Concord High School.
    Students from Newark High School and Alexis I duPont High School also competed in the event at Junior Achievement of Delaware’s headquarters in Wilmington.
    As students were eliminated from the competition, they were provided with opportunities to participate in workshops called, “Building a Better Business Network” and “Personal Brand,” led by DESHRM volunteers.
