A huge accomplishment for a student in the 561.

Julian Lichtenfeld, a junior at Spanish River High School in Boca Raton, placed second in the International DECA Conference held in Atlanta, April 21-24.

Julian presented his Philanthropy Tank project – Hydroponic Harvest.

Hydroponic Harvest works to provide fresh produce to families in need in Palm Beach County through their hydroponic systems (which is a method of growing plants without soil).

In March of 2017, Julian was awarded $10,000 through Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank – a program that empowers and equips students to develop and execute high-impact sustainable community betterment projects.

To date, past winners have impacted the lives of more than 195,000 Palm Beach County residents.
