Some of the best and brightest future business leaders in our area went head to head Wednesday in a simulation.
It's the fourth year of the Junior Achievement Competition.
48 students from La Crosse, Onalaska Luther, West Salem, and Bangor are assigned a business industry. The two person teams take on the role of CEO and handle all the company's decisions.
They were paired up with actual business people from the community.19408072
As the students strived to do better business than their competitors, they said it was a great real world simulation. "You've gotta think what kind of things you have to do and what you have to put out there in order for people to make a profit, to sell the product to the people," said Bangor senior Molly Arentz.
The winners from the competition were Chad Seitz and Christian Schran from West Salem. They both receive a $500 scholarship and advance to the state competition next month.
