Florida Tech to Host 11th Annual High School Business Ethics Competition

MELBOURNE, FLA. — The Florida Tech College of Business and Community Educators Credit Union invite high school juniors and seniors to participate in the
eleventh annual High School Business Ethics Competition on Friday, March 9, 2007. In the daylong event, the students from Brevard County and other Central
Florida high schools compete by developing solutions to thorny ethical problems. High schools are welcome to join in for a chance to win scholarships and
cash prizes.

“While it is a competition with awards for the top three teams, the real focus of the day is to stimulate these young minds with a valuable learning
exercise,” said Dean of the College of Business David M. Steele.

Judges for the competition come from a variety of career fields and include many prominent members of the community.

Florida Tech will guarantee a minimum College of Business scholarship of $8,000 per year for each member of the first-place team, and $6,000 for
second-place team members.

The event, sponsored by Community Educators’ Credit Union, also offers $500 per member to the first-place team, $250 per member to the second-place team
and $125 per member to the third place team. In addition to student prizes, thanks to the Gannett Foundation, coaches of the presenting teams will be
awarded $100 per team each to be used in purchasing classroom supplies.

Schools wishing to enter teams may call (321) 674-7327, or contact Jean Grunke at jgrunke@fit.edu.
