Sur­rey Board of Trade Spon­sors 4th An­nual North Sur­rey Se­condary School In­vi­ta­tional Busi­ness Case Com­pe­ti­tion

- Education · Surrey · British Columbia

The Sur­rey Board of Trade’s Youth En­trepreneur­ship Pro­gram con­tin­ued their sup­port of the North Sur­rey Se­condary School In­vi­ta­tion Busi­ness Case Com­pe­ti­tion. Melissa Peel, the Sur­rey Board of Trade’s Busi­ness & In­ter­na­tional Cen­tre Man­ager rep­re­sented Sur­rey’s busi­ness or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Ta­manawis Se­condary School won their tier mov­ing them onto the fi­nals in their first case com­pe­ti­tion ever!

1st place went to Team 10 - Win­der­mere Se­condary School – over­all: Lynn Nguyen, Kelly Chong, Kelly Chong, Alice Zhang Con­grat­u­la­tions!

Par­tic­i­pants were asked if they ex­celled in busi­ness and prob­lem solv­ing and wanted an op­por­tu­nity to en­rich their busi­ness ex­pe­ri­ence.

Case com­pe­ti­tions are typ­i­cally done at the univer­sity level, but we are start­ing a move­ment in BC to bring a sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ence to high school stu­dents. Stu­dents are given a real-life busi­ness sit­u­a­tion (a case) that has been ex­pe­ri­enced by an or­ga­ni­za­tion. Stu­dents work in teams of 4 to un­der­stand, an­a­lyze and solve a case be­fore they present their rec­om­men­da­tions to a panel of judges.

School teams are iso­lated in their own class­room for 3 hours to an­a­lyze and solve a case, plus pre­pare a pre­sen­ta­tion for a panel of judges. All teams used the same case and the judges were SFU Beedie Alumni.

This is prac­ti­cal, mean­ing­ful and real-life busi­ness skills and ex­pe­ri­ences to our high school stu­dents.

Thank you to the lead­er­ship of a North

Sur­rey Se­condary School Teacher, Ms. Jen­nifer Schutz.
