High School Students Compete at Missouri Western

Students from around the state of Missouri descended on Missouri Western on Tuesday to compete in the Entrepreneurship Challenge.
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Future business leaders put their ideas to the test today during a competition at Missouri Western.

The competition was part of the Entrepreneurship Challenge, a contest held at high schools throughout the state.

The St. Joseph School District was well represented at the competition sending eight teams out of the twenty that attended.

Groups had three hours to develop a private-sector business plan.

"It kind of gave that personalized feel where we got to work in a small personalized group and just do what we thought needed to be done," Central High School senior Max Mitchem said.

Isaac Collins attended the event as a facilitator.

"This is really important," he said. "It gives them a chance to be an entrepreneur."

Winners of the competition will receive a $1,000 scholarship if they decide to attend Missouri Western State University.
