The High School Business Challenge is an eight-week simulation in which students manage a company. Students are required to make decisions in the areas of price, plant size, amount of production, advertising, human resources, etc. Decisions are made once a week, with each decision representing one quarter in the life cycle of the business and resulting inputs are due each Wednesday.

The top three teams (statewide) that have the highest overall stock prices are awarded college scholarship monies by the Montana State Chamber Foundation and the Student Assistance Foundation.

Teachers who have participated in the highly popular and successful High School Business Challenge (HSBC), sponsored by the Montana Chamber Foundation, state that training plays an important part in the ease with which the simulation is played.

If you would like to participate and require training, or would like further information, please contact Tim Alzheimer at or 994-2263. For a copy of the teacher’s manual and more information, go to
