WHS business students enjoy success at October & December competitions

Tingelhoff takes top accounting honors @ UNO Business Competition; Wahoo takes 1st place of all schools @ UNL Husker Invite!

In this time when everything has been cancelled or postponed, local colleges have been busy figuring out how to offer business competitions virtually to high school students. Instead of traveling to the colleges, students take the tests online at their high school.

WHS business students have participated in two competitions this year offered by the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. 

The UNO High School Business Competition took place in October. Caden Tingelhoff placed 1st in Accounting and 5th in Management Information Systems. Students who earned first-place honors received a one-time $1,000 scholarship to UNO’s College of Business Administration!

The UNL Husker Invitational took place the first week of December. Wahoo swept the competition by placing 1st among all schools! 

Over 300 students participated in the competition. Individuals who placed in the top five of an event were Caden Tingelhoff (1st place Accounting), Luke Polacek (2nd place Personal Finance, 5th place Business Calculations), and Colin Ludvik (3rd place Economics).

“There is always good in everything,” commented WHS Business Instructor Barb Shanahan. “One benefit of the virtual competition is that more students were able to take part in the competitions as there were no travel limitations. We missed traveling to these schools and experiencing being on a college campus, but we welcome competing against more students.”

Congratulations WHS business students on these well-earned honors!
