All students in Mrs. Morris' Intro to Business and Entrepreneurship classes completed Business Plans according to the Maverick Challenge Competition structure. Then, students who wanted to have a shot at competing for the school prize, presented their plan and projects on November 27th and 28th. From those presentations, the top four groups were selected by Mr. Dave Church and Mr. Ray Neihaus, and allowed a few weeks to fine tune and enhance their presentations to compete for the school competition which was held on December 14th.
