Two local teams from PASS Woodwinds Alternate School are among the top ten finalists in B.C. vying for $1,500 in prize money.

Junior Achievement of British Columbia (JABC) is hosting a province-wide competition, Winter Business Challenge, which more than 300 senior high school students have participated in.

The competition challenges students to work in teams managing a virtual company in a simulated marketplace, where students must respond to changing economic conditions. Students managers must outsmart other companies competing for market share and financial success. Challenges are based on the concepts and strategies students learn in the JA Titan program.

The two Parksville teams are the Under Achievers and $GENR8TOR.

The winners round will run Jan. 8-16.

According to Junior Achievement vice president Andrew Sloan, JA is the world’s largest non profit organization dedicated to educating young people about business and motivating school-aged children and youth to take an active role in their future.
