High school students from our 24-county area participated in the Drs. David & Agnes Palmer JA Titan Virtual Competition on Tuesday, April 20th. Competing virtually, students took on the role of corporate business leaders making decisions that affect the profitability and sustainability of their virtual company. With scholarship funding provided by Vickie Anne Palmer, Mediapolis High School teams came out on top with students from Team 1 winning $1,000 scholarships, students from Team 3 receiving $750 scholarships and students from Team 2 awarded $250 scholarships. Central DeWitt High School Team 2 was the winner of the Consolation bracket with each team member receiving a gift card. Special thanks to all participating high schools!
