From the Modesto Bee, October 30, 2014
Luke Rocha of Modesto won the latest round of the Stanislaus Innovation Challenge with products that could be used in airsoft tactical war games.
He was among seven people who pitched business ideas Wednesday night in Patterson, the third of four regional rounds leading up to the Dec. 10 finals in Modesto. The overall winner will receive $2,500 in cash and the same amount in professional services.
Rocha said his products could be of use to people in law enforcement and the military. He was a finalist in the Oakdale regional Oct. 8 and was chosen by the organizers to also take part in Patterson.
