MADISON – Wisconsin Business World announced on Wednesday it is launching two statewide business-focused competitions in partnership with Kwik Trip for students in grades 6-12.
A leader in vertical integration, manufacturing and customer care, the Wisconsin-based Kwik Trip Corporation has graciously partnered with Wisconsin Business World to present two project-based competitions with a focus on innovation and corporate culture.
“Wisconsin businesses and manufacturers have historically proven to be creative and resilient leaders in their communities,” said Wisconsin Business World Director Michelle Grajkowski. “Kwik Trip is a terrific example of the importance of not only innovation, but more importantly, corporate philanthropy and culture. We’re excited to engage students with fun, educational competitions that use Kwik Trip’s best practices as a backdrop and to see their unique takes on workplace culture and innovation.”
Students will choose to create a marketing plan for a new product for Kwik Trip convenience stores or a training video to showcase the soft skills they feel are important to build a strong corporate and customer culture. Wisconsin Business World is awarding $500 cash prizes to the top three entrants in each of the competitions.
The competitions will open on Thursday, September 16 with entries due on December 15. Winners of both competitions will be announced in early 2022.
Since 1982, Wisconsin Business World – a program of WMC Foundation – has educated more than 25,000 high school students on business, entrepreneurism and the free market, through Summer Camps, one-day programs, online curriculum and classroom presentations. The Business World message is simple — Business is a Force for Good.
