On March 3, 2016 five greater Bangor area United Technologies Center (UTC) students came in first place in the Maine “Lifesmarts” Competition. LifeSmarts offers students a challenge in five key areas: personal finance; consumer rights and responsibilities; health and safety; the environment; and technology in an academic “Jeopardy” type of competition. High schools across Maine enter into an online competition. The four top scoring schools in the state are then invited to the final state competition. The four finalist teams were United Technologies Center in Bangor, Mt Ararat High School of SAD 75, Topsham, Waynflete School in Portland, and Woodland High School in Baileyville. With all expenses paid, the UTC students are heading to Denver for the Nationals on April 8, 2016. Prior to the Denver trip the 5 students had to produce a one minute video (see below) in only a few days time about the “LifeSmarts”competition and why other students should participate in the future.
