Dorchester teens take third at national entrepreneurship competition

LAS VEGAS — A group of teenagers from Dorchester’s Community Academy of Science and Health won third place in a national entrepreneurship competition Saturday night.

The students were out in Las Vegas for the Sage Global USA competition.

To get there, they won a competition in Boston and raised thousands of dollars by selling their product.

That product is an aromatherapy stress ball that you can squeeze to release a scent designed to keep you calm -- they call it Aroma Squeeze.

The students are part of the Build program, which pairs kids up with mentors and helps them stay in school and get into college.




The team says they’ve already sold out of the Aroma Squeeze balls they brought to Vegas.
