11th Grade 

On Thursday December 1st, the 11th graders hosted their first business pitch event, an event to present a business idea that they’ve worked on this year. A total of 26 groups met their partners and presented a 2 minute pitch to a table of judges. The numerous groups talked about a variety of requirements, like the demographic their targeting, why they chose that business, the cost, etc. The groups had many creative and innovative ideas that surprised many of how different businesses can be, they included cafes/restaurants, fashion brands, race awareness, college preparedness, food management apps, community clean up, and skincare/makeup brands. Every single idea was brilliant, but only one came out on top. Group 9, Psyche, won 1st place with their clothing brand that spreads mental health awareness.
