Over 100 students from seven high schools across the Panhandle went head-to-head in the Best of the West Business Business Invitational yesterday.
The event, which was co-hosted by Chadron State College and the Nebraska Council on Economic Education, involved written-test competitions in Accounting, Business Calculations, Business Communications, Economics, Introduction to Business, Introduction to FBLA, Introduction to Financial Math and Personal Finance. Students also participated in a job interview contest judged by Chadron State faculty members Terrie Wood, Dr. Wendy Waugh, Dr. Todd Jamison and Dr. Richard Koza.
Best of the West is designed to offer experience for the upcoming Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) contest in April.
Members of Phi Beta Lambda, CSC’s collegiate division of the business career student organization, helped with the event and fielded questions about higher education and CSC’s business programs.
