High school students in Manitowoc and Calumet counties have the opportunity to become CEOs for a day by participating in the Junior Achievement Business Challenge II, a hands-on, computer-simulated business strategy tournament held at Lakeshore Technical College.
The event takes place from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 19 on LTC's Cleveland campus.
