Students at C.E. Jacobson Elementary in Rush City called upon their inner Thomas Edisons Friday during the school’s inventors fair.

Sixth grade students Madelynn Hilton and Brystin earned first place for their invention, “The Non-Bruiser.”

The purpose of The Non-Bruiser is to prevent apples from falling on the ground or getting bruised. It also would keep bugs and animals from eating apples off the ground. Both girls are very excited about finding creative ways to promote their new product.

Second grade students Meghan May and Hailey Volk won second place with their “Tooth Buddies" invention.

After thinking long and hard, they created an invention called “Tooth Buddies.” Each Tooth Buddy “will hold your tooth; it will help the tooth fairy see in the night.”

Third place at the inventors fair went to Hailey Whitledge and Kiyana Maynard, fourth grade students who put their heads together and came up with “The Blanket Holder.”

This invention helps people hold blankets in place outside. The girls were proud of the stakes they made that attached to each of the clips.
