The Valley Industrial Association announced the Sierra Vista Junior High school team as the winners of the VIA Students to Achieve Results competition.

The VIA STAR is a product development contest designed to partner local students with Santa Clarita Valley businesses.  

The Sierra Vista team partnered with the City of Santa Clarita Tourism Bureau and developed a plan to enhance city-sponsored event revenue. 
 
Teams consisted of between three and five students, with each team paired with a teacher, coach and a participating business partner.  Students from elementary, junior and senior high schools throughout the Santa Clarita Valley were eligible to participate.
                                                                                        
Over a two month period the teams were asked to research, brainstorm, and design a new product or service for their host business.  They then drafted a business plan to build and market the product, and presented their completed project to the host company as well as a panel of judges.
