The team of Brittany Rodgers, Casey Bass, Zach Corbett and Justin Corbett from Echols County High School took first place in the 2003 Free Enterprise Bowl.
The competition, which also featured teams from Lowndes High School and Brooks County High School, was sponsored by Valdosta State University's Students In Free Enterprise on Feb. 27.
The bowl was divided into two sessions. The first was a question-and-answer competition dealing with issues like supply and demand, opportunity costs, taxes, international trade, types of businesses and entrepreneurship. The second focused on each team's business plan, which was judged based on presentation skills, content of the business plan, creativity, professional dress and viability of the product.
The Echols County High School team presented a business plan to start a Mexican restaurant; Lowndes High School's plan focused on selling smoothies at various school events; and the Brooks County High School team developed a business plan to sell stuffed animals.
