The winning BLUE team included Ms. Flakne; Philip Naught, Naught-Naught Insurance Agency; Anecita Sancho, Isle of Capri Casino; and Elizabeth Sharp, Fresh Ideas.  For the Street Challenge, the BLUE Team dressed in superhero costumes, encouraging passersby to be superheroes for Job Point by purchasing raffle tickets and kettle corn.  For the Talent Challenge, they performed a skit and slide show based on the popular movie, “The Hangover”. As finalists, Ms. Sancho and Ms. Flakne were each posed a final question by Mr. Parry to determine the winner.
