Students compete in High School Business Ethics Case Competition

Posted: Updated:

Students at the University of Charleston got to show off their debate skills on Thursday afternoon.

The 3rd Annual High School Business Ethics Case Competition at the University of Charleston put more than 70 students from across West Virginia to the test.

Teams were split into leagues and given 30 minutes to prepare for the first round of competition. The winners advanced to the second round and were given 45 minutes to prepare a presentation.

"These high school students come from a variety of backgrounds, FBLA teams, DECCA teams, even some that are just different organizations that they have on their high school campuses. And what they do is gather here today. They have 30 minutes and they analyze an ethical dilemma," said Adam Debrioe, from the University of Charleston.

The first place team received a $1,000 prize. Second place participants won $750 and $500 was awarded to the third place team.
