Team Sweet from Vanier Secondary put their business skills to the test and placed second at a competition Monday in Vancouver.

The 14th annual BC Business Challenge featured 21 high school-based ‘companies’ from the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, Northern BC and the Interior. Hosted by Junior Achievement of B.C., the event was a fast-paced competition where Grade 11 and 12 students took on the role of high-tech executives in a global business simulation. The intense day of game-play had teams working against the clock to develop management strategies for their imaginary companies, analyzing financial reports and scrutinizing actions of other companies in a futuristic marketplace.
