Whitney Point students excel at Greater Binghamton Scholastic Challenge
Recently, 21 Personal Finance students spent the day at Binghamton University participating in the Greater Binghamton Scholastic Challenge. Students from 12 Southern Tier schools competed to develop a business and marketing plan for a new business idea. Students presented their business plan proposals to a panel of judges made up of local business owners and entrepreneurs. It was a great learning experience for all students involved.

Whitney Point had one winner, Isaac Coy, who entered his idea for a new coffee maker and coffee delivery service in the Food Service category.

Another student, Zach Kelsey received an honorable mention from a judge in the STEM category. Zach received an offer from the local business owner/engineer to further develop his prototype developed with fellow Whitney Point students Ethan Baker for a new design that will harness wind energy. Bill Howe, owner and CEO of VehWare offered to sponsor and mentor Zach in the 76 Clean Energy Competition. This competition, sponsored by NYSERDA, is one of the largest competitions in the country that focuses on supporting and growing clean-energy businesses and awards over 1 million dollars each year in prize money. This is an awesome opportunity!
