Junior Achievement of Southeastern Washington Awarded $15,000 from Washington River Protection Solutions, LLC
Washington River Protection Solutions makes a major investment in local youth through a generous donation to Junior Achievement of Washington, Southeastern Region. Since 2009 Washington River Protection Solutions has been the Premier Sponsor of JA’s Titan Business Challenge, a regional competition based on the JA Titan classroom program hosted in local high schools. Based on an online business simulation, JA Titan and the culminating Business Challenge offer a real-world look at the challenges and opportunities involved in running a dynamic high-tech company. At its core, the simulation asks students to make decisions in key areas of business: price, production, marketing, capital investment, research & development and charitable giving.
“The JA Titan program and the Titan Business Challenge are great ways to engage and educate students in the realities of today’s business environment and help prepare them to be successful in careers and as informed citizens,” said Peter Bengtson, Washington River Protection Solutions’ Communications and Public Relations Manager. “WRPS is pleased to support such an event. The students, as well as our community benefit from this spirited regional competition.”
This year’s Titan Business Challenge took place May 2, 2018 at the Three Rivers Convention Center and hosted nearly 70 students from seven different area High Schools. Each member of the winning team from Chiawana High School took home a $300 cash prize and will proudly display the Titan Championship Trophy for the next year.
