Business plan wins entrepreneurship contest

March 30, 2014 

Two students from DECA (the International Association of Marketing Students) at Jordan-Matthews High School in Siler City won first place in the statewide Hop on the Bus competition.

Madison Walters and Marissa Devine’s business plan for “The Earl’s Tea Room” won the contest, sponsored by the N.C. Council for Economic Education, the N.C. Department of Public Instruction and N.C. REAL Enterprise. They submitted a full business plan and also made a video to present it.

Hop on the Bus aims to promote entrepreneurship by challenging N.C. high school students to dream up a business and then make a plan to get it started.
