FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A team from Fairfield Ludlowe High School bested students from 15 high schools from across western Connecticut to win Junior Achievement’s High School Business Challenge.

Sixty students from across Fairfield County and beyond competed in the April 24 contest, using Junior Achievement’s Titan program, a virtual business simulation, to make important decisions that could make or break their virtual businesses.

Throughout this rigorous competition, students developed skills in problem-solving, critical thinking and teamwork, while learning about important business concepts like management, research and development, production and marketing.

Each student on the Fairfield team won a $1,000 scholarship for the win.

Ridgefield High School placed second, winning $500 each, and students from Stratford High School placed first in the consolation bracket.

“The Junior Achievement Titan program exemplifies the work that our organization does with young people in our community: providing interactive programs and experiences that teach practical lessons in business, financial literacy and work readiness, while fostering the growth of soft skills,” said Bernadine Venditto, president of Junior Achievement of Western Connecticut.
