MAY 17, 2017 THE BEACON Contributed | Beacon Local students win scholarship funds at junior achievement event MANSFIELD - The inaugural Mansfield-Ar- ea JA Career Readiness Conference was held April 21, hosted by Junior Achieve- ment of North Central Ohio. The event was held at the Ohio State University – Mansfield Campus. The JA Career Readiness Conference is a one-day event during which students participate in hands-on activities to develop their work readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship skills. One part of the Conference is the JA Titan Challenge, a high school competi- tion that uses Junior Achievement’s high school JA Titan Program. The program increases students’ understanding of the real world of business. During the competition, students experience how success or failure of a business depends on how well they manage key decisions such as pricing, marketing strategies, and R & D investments. The winning team was Hunter Hold- sworth, Eli Keneda, and Sami Trowbridge from River View High School in Warsaw. Each student receives a $400 scholarship for their college education. Sponsors for the event included Ariel Corporation, K.E. McCarthy Associates, and Miliron Iron and Metals. For more information on local pro- grams, call 330-434-1875 or visit www.
