Several students from the Jamestown area completed the 32nd annual Business Challenge on the campus of Dickinson State University from June 21-26.
Attending were Sophie Miller, Adrian; Katelynn Hansen, Jamestown; and Andrea Roorda, Sanborn. These students were among the 150 participants who attended the weeklong program which provides students and educators with a better appreciation and understanding of business and entrepreneurship.
Business Challenge is supported by community and state donors. The attendees participated in competitions and learned about teamwork, leadership and setting real-life goals. Participants also gained a better knowledge of North Dakota’s economy and became more aware of what North Dakota has to offer.
The event provided educators and high school students an opportunity to run their own business, write a marketing plan, hear success stories, and meet some of North Dakota’s most influential people.
