Several local students recently competed for the sweet taste of victory.
Leadership Prince William (LPW) Summer Youth Academy hosted its Leadership Lemonade fundraiser last month.
The annual competition sought to encourage community awareness and philanthropy.
Participants, who were divided into two teams, raised funds for Serve Our Willing Warriors (SOWW) and The Freedom Museum by running competing lemonade stands.
The Red Team, which supported SOWW, won this year’s Leadership Lemonade by collecting about $875.
The Blue Team raised $825 for The Freedom Museum, according to an email from LPW.
In addition to collecting and purchasing supplies, the students solicited online donations.
They had one week to prepare for the fundraiser.
“Leadership Prince William is extremely proud of the efforts of this outstanding young leaders,” the email stated.
