MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Cumberland County sixth-grader Presley Conway won a national contest to join Sun-Maid's Board of Imagination.
The 11-year-old East Pennsboro Township resident is one of six board members selected in the national contest to develop the snack company's inaugural Board, which will help Sun-Maid develop new products and brand actions, according to the company.
Conway also receives a $5,000 scholarship and a $5,000 grant for her school, according to Sun-Maid. She is currently a student at Mountain View Middle School in the Cumberland Valley School District.
More than 1,000 children entered the contest, according to Sun-Maid. Conway was announced as one of the finalists late last month.
"I have creative ideas and I am not afraid to express my opinions with others. I am a leader at school and consider myself to be an influencer," Conway's bio says on the Sun Maid website.
The contest's voting period ended last Friday. Five winners were selected with a nationwide vote, while the sixth member was awarded a position based on an internal search of children of Sun-Maid employees, the company said.
