YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – More than 200 area students were honored Tuesday morning for competing in a business competition at Youngstown State University.
The Mahoning County Career and Technical Center hosted the Regional Business Professionals of America Awards Banquet.
Students from MCCTC and career centers in Trumbull and Columbiana counties received awards.
Top winners will head to Columbus for a state competition in March.
Educators said it’s a great way to teach students skills they can apply when they start business careers.
“We are preparing students for the future for different skill sets, whether it be anything from word processing to web design to networking to presentation management,” said Helen Slack, computer information technology instructor.
Students who win at the state level will then head to a national competition at the end of April.
