On May 29, 2008, San Leandro High School student Huong Cheng won first place at a regional business plan competition, according to Merrill Lynch, which sponsored the contest. Cheng received $1,500 for her "Personal Person" business plan and an expense-paid trip to New York to compete in the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship for a $10,000 prize.
According to Merrill Lynch, "Since its inception in 1994, the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) of Northern California has taught thousands of students the basics of starting and operating a small business. Merrill Lynch and NFTE work together to promote entrepreneurship education for low-income youngsters ages 14 to 18 by helping them improve their academic, business and life skills."
Cheng also plays on the badminton team at San Leandro High School.Posted by Mike Katz-Lacabe at May 31, 2008 8:36 AM | TrackBack
