Congratulations to WHS Marketing Students

students in the WHS marketing program

Several teams of marketing students from across the U.S. competed in the BizInnovator Pitch Competition, and one WHS team brought home 2nd Place! The competition is sponsored by the University of Iowa’s Institute for Youth Entrepreneurship, in which teams of students create a new business or expand upon an existing one, then pitch the idea to a panel of judges. The WHS team that won 2nd place submitted a business plan for a solar-powered phone charger made from upcycled plastic bottles. There were 191 entries; Cole Lewton, Ashton Rasmussen, Victor Cedillo, and Cody Wells received a $1,000 prize for their idea.
