CLEVELAND, WI – 

The Junior Achievement Business Challenge II event will be held Tuesday March 12, at Lakeshore Technical College from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. Volunteers for coaches are needed as registration is now open through March 1.

Open to all Manitowoc and Calumet County high school students, the JA-Business Challenge II allows teams of local high school students, coached by business volunteers, to become CEOs for a day through a computer-simulated business strategy tournament. Students must make their own business decisions regarding product pricing, marketing strategies, inventory levels, and research and development investments. This event is free, but is limited to the first 40 teams.

Winning teams will advance to the Junior Achievement of Wisconsin Statewide Business Challenge in April. Volunteer coaches are needed. No experience is necessary and training is available. To volunteer as a coach, please contact Jill Hennessey at jill.hennessey@gotoltc.edu.
