MSU hosts Technology Day Nov. 30
On Nov. 30 at Minot State University, high school students will compete at the Department of Business Technology’s 14th annual Technology Day. Following registration, the welcome session begins at 9 a.m. in the Conference Center, third floor of the Student Center.
"Technology Day is an excellent event to showcase area high school students in their business and technology skills," said Jan Repnow, business information technology instructor. "This event also showcases our business teacher-education students as they plan, organize and manage all aspects of this competition in preparation for their upcoming teaching careers."
High schools select students for competition in accounting, business law, desktop publishing, document production, business principles, spreadsheet applications, Web page design and business presentations. Every school is eligible to enter one student in each of the seven individual events. Student teams will also compete in the business presentation event.
The school with the most points for placements in all competitions will receive a sweepstakes trophy. Participating high schools are Berthold, Des Lacs-Burlington, Kenmare, Max, Powers Lake, Sawyer, Surrey, TGU Granville, Underwood, Westhope and newcomer Powers Lake.
BIT faculty members and business teacher-education students will supervise the competition in the Slaaten Learning Center and Old Main 314. A lunch and awards ceremony is scheduled for 12:15 p.m. in the Conference Center.
