Indiana high schoolers participate in Titan Challenge
Indiana high schoolers got a hands-on experience in business after competing in a challenge on Tuesday.
Penn, John Glenn, Clay, Northwood and Riley high schools all participated in business competition called Junior Achievement Titan Challenge.
Teams from different schools met at the Student Activities Center at IU South Bend’s campus to compete in the challenge.
Students acted as CEOs of their own businesses and had to make crucial decisions during the contest.
In the event, teams had to discuss different choices about prices, production, marketing, research, development and capital investment.
“As future business owners and entrepreneurs, it’s just a way for the students to learn what decisions effect their business and their growth and so Titan is a great way for them to make those decisions at a younger age and to hopefully achieve whatever results that they want to have when it comes to running their own companies,” Rickey Miller, Business Development Officer at Teachers Credit Union said.
Each member of the winning team received a $250 scholarship from AAA Federal Credit Union.
