Student "CEOs" from Greenfield High School defeated 14 other area schools in the Metro Milwaukee Junior Achievement Business Challenge presented by Kohl's CaresĀ® and Meijer, and hosted at Briggs & Stratton Corporation on Thursday, February 18, 2016. Each member of the First Place team received a $750 scholarship from Junior Achievement of Wisconsin, as well as the opportunity to participate in the Wisconsin JA Business Challenge Championship on Thursday, April 28, 2016.

The second place team, also from Greenfield High School, earned prizes from Kohl's, the Milwaukee Admirals, and will also advance to the statewide challenge in April.

"The JA Business Challenge prepares students for their continued journey after high school, in to college and their careers. The focus on team work and communication is exactly the type of experience employers are looking for in their future employees," said Dr. Eve Hall, president of the African American Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin.

In addition to gaining real-life business experience through the challenge, students had the opportunity to learn about the decision-making process, the significance of education and other valuable skills from guest speakers, including representatives from Kohl's and Dr. Hall.
