HELENA — In a hard fought battle over the course of the past eight weeks, Anaconda High School ended the spring semester of the High School Business Challenge with seven teams in the top eight and advanced to the 3rd Annual Challenge Bowl on April 30. The eighth and final team competing is Premium Music Player from Billings Skyview.
The Challenge Bowl is an opportunity for the top 16 teams (eight from the spring, eight from the fall) in the state to go head-to-head and win scholarship money. Scholarships will be awarded to all participants in the Bowl. First place team members receive $1,000 per student; second place, $750 per student; and third place team members each receive $500. Participants not placing in the top three will each receive a $100 scholarship.
The eight spring teams competing in the Challenge Bowl include:
- Sound Deck (Anaconda)
- Boost (Anaconda)
- Blue Wolves (Anaconda)
- Gross (Anaconda)
- Our Tunes (Anaconda)
- Biniek MP3 Inc (Anaconda)
- Helix (Anaconda)
- Premium Music Player (Billings Skyview)
“We are proud of the hard work the hundreds of students across Montana put in to the High School Business Challenge this year,” said Todd O’Hair, the executive director of the Montana Chamber Foundation. “This is a great program to promote youth entrepreneurship and we were grateful to partner once again with the Montana Council on Economic Education and Reach Higher Montana.”
Two other teams will also be awarded $100 scholarships: each member of Music Master from Roundup High School will receive a $100 scholarship for having the highest stock price increase of $63.60 per share between quarters 4 and 8. Through a lottery drawing, teams finishing in the top quartile are eligible for scholarships. The winners of the lottery drawing scholarship were Marvelous Music Machine from Winifred.
The fall teams competing in the Challenge Bowl from the fall include one team Melstone, one team from Columbia Falls, four teams from Anaconda, one team from Dillon and one team from Sunburst.
