Titan Challenge held in March

The University of Maine at Presque Isle hosted the 10th Annual Junior Achievement of Maine Titan Challenge in the Campus Center on March 14. The event brought area high school students to campus to compete against their peers across the state on business finance and marketing simulations. The business competition pitted teams of three high school students against each other as they attempted to manage a virtual company in a competitive marketplace. All Maine high schools were invited to participate in this day long competition, free of charge. The event matched over 200 students with mentors from local businesses across the state. As the statewide speaker for the event, Senator Angus King shared his experience starting his own company and left students with 10 pieces of entrepreneurial advice including “keep your overhead low” and “dress like your banker.” Twenty-three teams competed here at UMPI. Congratulations to one of the regional winners at UMPI, “Caribou2” from Caribou High School, which consisted of Caleb Hunter, David Hunter, and Evan Desmond. The overall winner was “Caribou1” from Caribou High School, which consisted of Ben Ezzy, Maria Espinoso, and Elijah Verhoff. This event was sponsored on campus by the faculty of the Business Administration Program.
