Christmas comes early for a Young Alexander Inventor
Written by Dan Fischer on December 13, 2017
The votes have been counted and 14 year old Alexander High School Student Andrew Young Jr. has been selected as the winner of the nationwide My Dreamvention contest.
Andrew broke the good news to his grandmother while she was busy baking Christmas cookies.
He was inspired to create his winning invention the “Toaster Shooter” after seeing his grandmother burn her fingers trying to remove toast from a conventional toaster.
Andrew entered the nationwide contest sponsored by Frito-Lay after seeing an advertisement for it on the Ellen Show.
He was the only boy among the five finalists who were part of a voting campaign that ended last month.
Along with all the attention from winning, Andrew will receive a quarter million dollar prize which his father Andrew Senior said will be set aside for a college fund.
Andrew plans on attending M.I.T.
