MTSU - McWherter Learning Resource Center, Murfreesboro
Students are placed into teams. Each team creates a "business" for the competition choosing roles such as CEO, CFO, Vice President of Marketing, Vice President of Sales, and Vice President of Human Resources. Volunteers from the business community assist students in developing their ideas, writing business plans, developing marketing strategies and creating presentations of their work. On the final day, teams present their business plans to a panel of judges who decide whether to "fund" the business. Although no actual money is awarded for the hypothetical businesses, all members of the winning team receive laptops as their prizes.
Open to current 6th and 7th grade students
