For the first time in its eight-year history, the University of Utah Center for Medical Innovation's Bench-to-Bedside (B2B) annual competition included one high school—Rowland Hall.

The opportunity for Rowland Hall students to participate in B2B arose when the center reached out to local high schools. Rowland Hall jumped at the chance—and jumped high enough to win the Best Young Entrepreneur Award worth $500 at B2B April 3, and one of three grand prizes worth $5,000 each at the High School Utah Entrepreneur Challenge (HSUEC) April 15.
