A team of Upper School Chinese-language students joined the BYU Marriott School of Business Virtual High School Business Language Competition this year! Despite the many challenges of this year, these students were able to pull this off outside of class time, and took 3rd Place! The team included Chinese language students Peter B. ’21, Henry C. ’22, and Masaki T. ’21.

The High School Business Language Competition hosted by the Whitmore Global Business Center at BYU consists of two parts: a marketing plan development and a marketing plan presentation. Participants are required to complete both parts to participate in the competition. Each team must consist of three High School students who will present in Spanish, French, Chinese, or Arabic.

This year, the competition sponsor was Thread Wallets, a local Utah company. Each team developed a marketing plan for the lanyard wallet and phone case, including product, place, pricing and promotion. In the first round, the Waterford team submitted a marketing plan in Chinese as well as a video presentation to the judges. The judges called back our Waterford team, as one of the top three entrants, to have a live Q&A session about their marketing plan. 

A full list of the winners can be seen here. Masaki, Henry and Peter were sent personalized certificates, a trophy, a Thread wallet and Visa gift card. 

Congratulations to the winners and all that competed! Competing during these times is a win in itself!
