Twin Disc presents 2020 JA Business Challenge – Racine/Kenosha Area
 
The JA Business Challenge places high school students in the CEO's seat and increases their understanding of the real world of business. Students are given complete control to manage and operate their own virtual business. Success depends on how well they manage their company's key decisions. Companies (school teams) are challenged to outperform the competition in profit, sale and market share with winning teams being awarded scholarships. 
 
Through these competitions, students are equipped with the skills they need to succeed in the world as they tackle the same decisions of the business professionals they are teamed with face on a daily basis.  
 
For your school's participation, contact Jess Michaelis at (262) 638-4338 or email jmichaelis@jawis.org
 
High School Teams sponsored by BairdEducators Credit Union and Fisher USA
