The Third Annual Middle School NC County Marketing Contest

The contest was open to middle school students and sponsored by the NC Council on Economic Education. Students were to select a NC county, then create a Power Point presentation to persuade a company to relocate or expand to the county of their choice. Presentations had to include the following information: county name, county seat, county population, major industries, major employers, median income, housing, education, religion and healthcare.

Once completed, presentations were judged within the classroom and the top five were sent to the NC Council on Economic Education to compete at the state level.
