Warriner Students Take First at JA Virtual Business Challenge

June 7, 2021

Five Warriner High School students - Riley Woods, Jason Hietala, Aaron Virgin, Zeb Struck and Aria Meyer - were among 55 students from nine high schools to serve as CEOs for a day as part of the virtual Junior Achievement (JA) Business Challenge in April. 

Student teams were paired with community mentors to run a virtual manufacturing company using JA Titan, a computer business simulation. Students competing in the business strategy tournament made decisions regarding price, production, marketing, capital investment, and research and development. Winning teams had the best Performance Index, a combination of net income, retained earnings, and market share. 

Congratulations to Riley Woods, Jason Hietala, and Aaron Virgin, who finished in First Place and were each awarded a $750 scholarship.

$750 scholarships for First Place were also awarded to teams from Oconomowoc High School and J.I. Case High School in Racine.

First place winners advanced to the statewide JA Business Challenge Championship on May 4, 2021.
