WRLHS students win business challenge

The national Junior Achievement Titan Business Challenge Championship was won May 14 by Luke Hammond and Ryan Bohmback from Wolf River Lutheran High School.

Hammond and Bohmback competed against 34 other high school teams from across the United States in the digital competition to see which team could run the most profitable virtual company. They will travel June 10 to the 2024 JA National Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. to accept their award in person and engage with innovation, business, and entrepreneurship experts, attend professional development seminars, and gain exposure to a national network of teen entrepreneurs.

This is the second time in two years that a team of Wisconsin students took first place in the JA USA national competition. In 2022, the national winners came from a team of high school students from Appleton North High School and Beloit Memorial High School.
