Gifford School Student Named Incredible Kid!

10/16/2017

Gifford School student Alex Hart-Upendo has earned the title of Incredible Kid! Last month, the fifth grader was named the 2017 American Egg Board’s Incredible Kid.

The AEB, which serves as the marketing arm for U.S. egg farmers, started the national search for the country’s most incredible kids as a part of its campaign to highlight the importance of high-quality protein foods, like eggs, to fuel students to be their best. Children from across the nation submitted applications.

As part of being named the national winner, Alex will be participating in a ceremony in Chicago next month. He was also given a $2,500 scholarship for himself and $2,500 that he will be donating to Gifford School.

In addition to the donation, Alex and gold medal Olympian Laurie Hernandez will be hosting a breakfast for the school next month!
