Noblesville High School students Landon Swift, Gus Nance and Luke Shinneman won the regional Innovate WithIN entrepreneur pitch competition, held recently at Purdue University.

The NHS engineering students each received $1,000 for their win that can then be used towards developing their project or education. They will now advance to state competition on June 10.

Their project is a combination lift system and “airbag” designed to help get motorized wheelchairs into the cargo bay of an airplane and keep them safe during flight.
