A local organization has an extra $3,500 to help Kansas students look for careers.

The Taco Bell Foundation awarded the grant to Jobs for America’s Graduates-Kansas (JAG-K).

The money goes towards its annual Career Development Conference.

At the conference, students showcase the skills they have been learning in the classroom by taking part in competitive events. 

It was held in Salina last week and featured competitions in math and public speaking, among others.
