A former Beloit Memorial High School student who now attends the University of Minnesota is one of 40 students nation-wide who will pitch their business idea at the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship’s annual National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge.

Jaidyn Cox says he took an engineering class his freshman year of high school where he learned computer aided design software.

Cox says he came up with the idea for 3D printed eyeglasses frames after realizing how expensive they are.

Cox will travel to New York City for the competition this week that has a top prize of $10,000.
