A team from Plymouth High School won the recent Junior Achievement Business Challenge, which puts students in the CEO seat of a computer-simulated company.
At the event, held Nov. 12 at Acuity in Sheboygan, 48 teams from high schools across Sheboygan County made business decisions about a futuristic Holo-Generator product.
As the first-place team, PHS students Jacob Honeck and Cody Dessloch each won $1,500 and will compete at the State Business Challenge in May.
Four other teams from Plymouth High School also participated:

Plymouth High School student Anna Brink was one of five Wisconsin students chosen as a delegate to the recent Global Youth Institute conference in Des Moines, Iowa.
The institute, which took place Oct. 16-19 during the annual World Food Prize International Symposium, is an opportunity for high school students to gather with peers, educators, researchers, and policy-makers from around the world to discuss challenges and solutions to hunger and poverty.
The five Wisconsin delegates were selected in April from 69 participants at the fifth annual Wisconsin Youth Institute hosted by the UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. Students research, write, submit, present, and discuss papers about a global food security issue under the supervision of a teacher or mentor; Anna’s paper examined food security in Guatemala.
