Walmart East Windsor NJ Store Hosts Boys & Girls Club Shopping Spree

Some 20 finalists in the New Jersey State Youth of the Year competition, sponsored by Walmart with the Boys & Girls Clubs, visited Walmart Store #3266 in East Windsor, NJ on May 7, 2009, for a shopping spree that enabled them to buy professional attire for their personal interviews and oral presentations in the state-level competition later this month. Each of the young people received a $1,500 scholarship from Walmart and a $100 gift card for the shopping spree. The state winner will earn an additional $20,000 in scholarship money and the chance to compete in the Regional Youth of the Year contest, leading to the national competition later this year. In this video news wrapper, Steve Lubetkin speaks with two of the finalists and with Connie Ludwin, NJ State Director for the Boys & Girls Clubs.
