Central Wisconsin students get a taste of the business world

WAUSAU (WAOW) - Central Wisconsin high school students got some experience in the business world Wednesday.

The event involves 60 students from Wausau East, D.C. Everest, Mosinee and Newman Catholic schools.

Students work as a team to solve problems for a made-up company. Organizers say it's never too early to be prepared for the future.

"What we try to do in one quick day is try to get them excited about their future. They're the future work force. We talk to them about things they need to be prepared for and to be careful of, social media being a huge one," said Steve Benzchawel of Wisconsin Business World.

Organizers say the event has changed over the years as the world of business changes.
