Students rewarded with computers

July 23, 2004

Valdosta - Looking for a way to motivate your kids to study? How about a free computer?

Four Valdosta youngsters won Pentium Three Gateway computers Friday. They were the grand champions of the Jeopardy Bowl sponsored by VSU's College of Education and Students in Free Enterprise.

For the past month, SIFE members and education majors have been teaching them lessons in science, math, history, and business at the Boys and Girls Club. "They were taught different lessons ranging from opportunity cost to scarcity, and the older students were taught how to do Internet research," said Sarah Long, SIFE Member.

The computers that were given away were donated by First Federal Savings and Loan Bank.
