Austin Harig, a junior at Hutchinson Technical High School, won first place in the seventh annual Junior Achievement Business Plan Challenge at Bryant & Stratton College.
Harig won for his idea for HarigPics Inc., an online business that posts company advertisements on social media, as well as promoting its own website for the purpose of profit. He won a $2,000 scholarship from Delta Air Lines.
Twelve teams from seven schools made pitches to a panel of judges. The entrants worked with teachers, mentors and Junior Achievement volunteers from the business community to develop their ideas.
