Brevard students' invention wins them $96,000 scholarship

A team of students from Bayside High School won $96,000 in scholarship money at the Junior Achievement Blastoff Challenge Tuesday night. 

Four teams from Brevard County high schools presented invention ideas to a group of judges at the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse during the seventh annual Junior Achievement event. C.G. Goddard and Gianna Forsythe, juniors at Bayside High in Palm Bay, were named the winners. 

They proposed to the judges "Tray'Pron," a tray-apron hybrid for sports fans to use at games. They showed a prototype of the product, a cardboard tray that includes a cupholder affixed to a plastic apron that goes around the user's head and covers the chest, resembling the contraption hotdog vendors wear as they walk through football stadiums. 

"We wanted to stop people having to hold all their food in their hands" at sports games, Goddard said, as well as help customers prevent spilling on their favorite jerseys.
