The Central Minnesota CEO class, is a conglomerate of the Staples and Wadena school districts that allows students to develop real life business skills, while working toward their final goal of starting a business of their own.
This year after touring multiple different businesses, and getting all the information they need to start the business they envisioned, the class as a group has worked to organize a “ice fishing jamboree.” This event will be held on February 25th on Dower Lake just outside of Staples. This event will feature many prizes such as fishing equipment, gift cards and a grand prize of a guided fishing trip from local outdoorsman, Walleye Dan. All the prizes were donated by local businesses and collected by the students. This project tests all of the skills that the students learned during their time in CEO this year, including working with donors, planning and coordinating the event and location, as well as making flyers and marketing for the affair.
With this being only the second year that CEO has been in Central Minnesota, the students, as well as the local area, are excited to host the event. The jamboree is open to the public, and tickets are $10 for a adults and $7 for children, available at the local high schools, as well as several area businesses. For more information on the fishing event, visit the CEO website, and for more information on the CEO class, check out our earlier blogs or the Midland Institute’s website.
