CLEAR LAKE, IA – Some area students are learning a thing or two about marketing, team work, and agriculture – all by creating a one-of-a-kind pizza.
Eight different teams are showcasing their creations at the 10th annual “PizzaThon.”
Each group creates their own pizza and puts together a marketing plan to sell it.
Students have been working on the project since February.
Organizers say the ag aspect of the contest is very important.
“Ag in the Classroom” Coordinator, Brenda Adams said, “They took their ingredients from their pizza and traced them back to the farm. If they had sausage on their pizza,they had to figure out where that sausage came from and investigate, do a little more research on pork industries in Iowa.”
The top 3 teams received a cash prize based on all aspects of their plan. That money goes directly back to the school for future programs.
