On March 8th, SCA High School's Marketing and Introduction to Business students competed in Bloomsburg University's Entrepreneurship Competition hosted by the University. Emerging as winners of the high school division were Tristan HeimCole Potter, and Eli Yemzow, students in Mrs. Kristie Anderson's Marketing class. The emerging entrepreneurs competed against students from Bloomsburg, Danville, and Berwick school districts and will now advance to Bloomsburg University's Husky Dog Pound statewide competition, a Shark Tank-like battle for $50,000 in prize money, on April 18th.
 
The Entrepreneurship Competition required the students to develop a business idea and then deliver an elevator speech. The two-minute speech called for the students to explain their business idea; their target audience, discuss their competition and how they plan to make money with the product/service. The elevator pitches were judged on marketability, feasibility, profitability, and presentation skills. The competition is being sponsored by BU's Zeigler College of Business, Microsoft, and Allan Darr from ProAct LTD.
