Since the beginning of the school year, Mrs. Jones’ Marketing class has been working diligently on the Maverick Challenge, a county-wide competition in which high school students plan and present metaphorical businesses.
From brainstorming business ideas in August, to an executive summary in October, a slideshow in November, all the way to a final presentation in January, the Marketing class put immense effort into these business plans. Eight teams moved on in the initial round of the competition, which then had to give ten minute presentations to judges appointed by the Maverick Challenge. All of these teams earned a cash prize, totaling in over $7,000 in rewards for everyone. Out of the top 3 places, two of them were from Seymour High School. Congratulations to all of the teams that participated.

Maggie Connell, who placed first in the county competition, will be moving on to the regional competition later this year. It was quite the feat trying to organize this competition in a pandemic, but the class worked around it as well as it could, with quite amazing results. If you see any of these students in the hallways, congratulate them!
