Around 100 students from eight schools in seven counties representing 4-12 grades all added up for a successful economics learning experience at the SAKE event hosted April 8, 2016, at the Southern Arkansas University Rankin College of Business.
“The junior and senior student presentations for the Business Dilemmas were very impressive to observe – they had obviously put a great deal of thought behind their presentations,” said Sheryl Edwards, SAU instructor of finance and Enactus advisor. “In addition, students were given grade appropriate standards-based exams and their resulting scores were super.”
To conclude the day, students, teams and teachers were awarded prizes and gift cards totaling $9,250. SAKE at SAU was sponsored by the Murphy Foundation, SAU Enactus, SAU PBL, the Center for Economic Education and Research and the Rankin College of Business. The counties represented at SAKE included Columbia, Union, Ouachita, White, Dallas, Monroe and Grant.
