Navajo candy kids

Sweet success

Blanding students start chocolate factory, win youth entrepreneurs of the year awardThey've been written up in at least three newspapers, had breakfast at the White House, and met President Bush.

Last week, they were honored by their peers at RES 2007, the Reservation Economic Summit in Las Vegas, Nev., as youth entrepreneurs of the year.

It's safe to say the recognition has not gone to the heads of the young executives at Lickety Split, a candy company run entirely by Native children.
