JA of North Florida Hosts Second FedEx Junior Business Challenge on the PGA Tour
Thanks to JA of North Florida, FedEx, and THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass for hosting the second FedEx Junior Business Challenge. Sandalwood High School's Team Antibee, which won Wednesday's competition, will meet the winners of the other PGA TOUR challenges at the TOUR Championship in Atlanta this September, where students have the chance to earn a $75,000 donation from FedEx to their local JA location.
At each competition, JA students pitch their team's business concept to a panel of judges, who then select one winning team. Thanks also to our most recent judging panel: Billy Horschel (PGA TOUR professional), Tripp Davis (Managing Partner, PwC Florida), Mary Lynn Schroder (CEO/Lead Designer, In Blue Handmade), and Kristi Dosh (sports business professional).
The next stop in the FedEx Junior Business Challenge series is the Travelers Championship in Hartford, Connecticut, on Wednesday, June 21. Stay tuned!
