FRHSD Students Win Team Challenge Essay Contest

Every year the Monmouth Regional Chamber of Commerce hosts the Team Challenge event for all six Freehold Regional High School District Schools and Allentown High School. The purpose of the Team Challenge is to provide local high school students with hands-on experience in team building, creative problem solving and dealing with the ethical decision-making process within the context of real-world business problems. Using the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics framework from Santa Clara University, teams from the high schools explored business issues that have complex ethical implications. Over a period of several weeks, the teams worked together to develop solutions that show their understanding of the issues, demonstrate their use of the Markkula decision-making framework in working through the conflicts and illustrate evidence of their teamwork and presentation skills.

The Monmouth Regional Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation also offers an essay contest for students participating in the Team Challenge. The winning entries receive a scholarship. The scholarship recipients for 2019 were:

Julia Comi – Colts Neck High School

Kayla Fittipaldi – Howell High School
