During camp, students are placed into teams; each team then creates a “business” for the competition. Each team must choose someone to fulfill the following roles: CEO, CFO, Vice President of Marketing, Vice President of Sales, and Vice President of Human Resources.
Volunteers who serve in similar roles in our business community assist students in developing their business ideas, writing business plans, developing marketing strategies and financial plans, and creating PowerPoint presentations of their work for the final competition. On the final day of the camp, teams present their business plans to a panel of volunteer judges, who will then decide whether to “fund” the businesses. Although no actual money is awarded for the students’ hypothetical businesses, all members of the winning team receive laptops as their prizes. Ages rising 7th and 8th grade students. Application deadline is April 21.
