Contributed | Beacon RV students participate in Ohio Appalachian Competition COLUMBUS - Two teams from River View High School participated at The Ohio State University, Fisher College of Business in the first ever Ohio Appalachian Collabora- tive Export Competition among seven oth- er teams. Our teams proposed a product and/or service to export to a global market. Each team was very successful in pro- posing and presenting their product to panel of Ohio State University professors from the Fisher College of Business. Junior Achievement (JA) Titan Chal- lenge was participated by three teams from River View High School at The Ohio State University at Mansfield. JA Titan is an interactive online busi- ness simulation that offers a unique way for young adults to learn what it takes to compete in the marketplace and to run a successful business. Our RV students de- termine the success or failure of their busi- nesses based on how well they manage key decisions such as setting prices, filling production requests, establishing mar- keting, investing in research and develop- ment, and capital equipment. RVHS had nine students competing for first, second, and third place. RVHS was proudly represented this past week in many competitive events. Thank you to all participants who competed. Winners are not people who never fail, but people who never quit. In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can. Contributed | Beacon
