|The Center for Business and
Entrepreneurship at Black Hills State University will
host a one-week conference for 125 high school seniors
and ten teachers and counselors from across the state

purpose of the program is to stimulate curiosity and
provide answers to questions about how the free
enterprise system works in our country.
Students are assigned to groups to form competitive
companies. Each company has a business executive
|who acts as a mentor and
sounding board for the students. The main focus of each
company is to make management decisions through a
competitive management simulation activity. The program
also includes panel discussion, assembly speakers and
tours of area businesses to keep the students interested
while absorbing the message about business in South
During the conference YBA students also have an
opportunity to compete for one of the five $500 matching
scholarships offered through the YBA program. The
scholarships are matched by colleges, vocational and
tech schools and universities in the state.
