“Haley was awarded the $10,000 prize for a business plan she created for eco-friendly sweetener packets, beating out 31 other finalists. We love her idea because she created a small project that can have big impact. Also, we appreciate that Haley saw a need in her own world, and fixed it.
 
Here’s more on her inspiration: “Hoverter’s award winning business plan for Sweet (dis)SOLVE centers on the development of a sweetener made from organic sugar wrapped in a soluble organic starch that melts into your drink without adding calories, odor or taste. When Hayley Hoverter was six, her mother, a single working mom, brought her along to her job at Starbucks, early in the morning before school. Even at that young age, Hayley found the volume of discarded sugar wrappers distressing. Now a high school junior, Hayley will combat that wastefulness by executing her business plan.”
