Madison Namanny, Watford City High School, has been selected as one of five finalist teams to showcase their ideas during ND Innovation Day. Led by Kalsey Kronberg, students have been learning creativity, problem-solving and entrepreneurial thinking in Nice Idea, a free program that was launched this fall. 

Competing against 30 teams from across North Dakota, students were given real challenges to work through and advanced to the Showcase by demonstrating a win/win partnership, design thinking and an opportunity mindset in their solution. 

Students will be competing for cash prizes and NDSU scholarships for those who want to continue exploring entrepreneurship after high school. 

Powered by The Nice Center at NDSU, ND Innovation Day is a celebration of North Dakotans who are putting innovation to work in their classroom, communities and businesses. 

“Innovation is an essential skill for everyone - no matter their age. ND Innovation Day showcases how everyone from middle schoolers to retirees have the ability to make an idea come to life to improve their communities.” - Scott Meyer, Ozbun Executive Director Entrepreneurship.

The event will be live streamed on Nov. 19 from 1-4 p.m. CST. Tickets are free and available at
