#SoMuchGoodHappening- CEO Virtual Trade Show
Students from across our region are continuing their education digitally, and that includes our Knox County CEO students who are introducing their virtual trade show this week.
With schools closed and e-learning in full force, Knox County CEO students have also continued learning and making the most of this virtual situation. This week the Knox County CEO class will launch a Virtual Trade Show to showcase their businesses.
CEO is a one-of-a-kind, experiential learning opportunity for Knox County juniors and seniors from all of our county’s high schools (public/private/homeschool) allowing them to experience entrepreneurship and what it takes to run a business first hand. Students visit area businesses, learn from guest speakers, participate in a class business, write business plans, and start and operate their own businesses. Business concepts learned through the experiential CEO class are critical; the 21st century skills of problem-solving, teamwork, self-motivation, responsibility, higher-order thinking, communication, and inquiry are at the heart of a student’s development throughout the course.
Galesburg Community Foundation is proud to be an investor in the Knox County CEO program, which is a program brought to us through the Knox County Area Partnership for Economic Development.
This is another great example of #SoMuchGoodHappening right now.
