Business World in the Classroom

Enhance Your Class Curriculum


Online Program & Competitions

To help enhance your classroom curriculum, our Business World programming has gone virtual! In addition to our traditional presentations and workshops, we’re proud to announce a video library with suggested activities that you can use in your classroom.

Additionally, our program staff will be presenting and customizing our one-day programs to fit into your classroom schedule. Finally, we are excited to engage students from all over the state as they compete in our two new statewide competitions.

Statewide Competitions

Business is a Force for Good Essay Contest


From Mercury Marine’s outboard boat engine to Kwik Trip Glazers, cool things are being made every day across the state of Wisconsin!

Students are invited to write an essay no more than 1,000 words about the coolest thing they discover that’s being made right here in our great state! Behind every great product is a rich company history, so essays must include information about the manufacturer as well.

In order to thrive, businesses need to constantly be thinking two steps ahead of today. The Wisconsin-based Kwik trip Corporation has generously partnered with the Wisconsin Business World to bring you our inaugural bi-annual statewide classroom Culture and Innovation Competition. 

Students are invited to create a new product idea for the Kwik Trip Convenience Stores and creatively present the idea in a format of their choice: video essay, video commercial, written essay, recorded sales pitch, or other presentation style.

In order to continue to grow our program, we rely on the generous support from our business community. As our impact has more than tripled over the past two years, our program budget has also grown to $265,000 for this fiscal year.
