When the dust settled last December, Peninsula High School in Gig Harbor, Washington, was home to America's top titans of industry. A group of students from teacher Lori Smith's economics class won Junior Achievement's eight-team national JA Titan-School Edition competition.
The interactive computer simulation places students at the helm of a virtual cyberpen company, where they manage everything from hiring and pricing to investing and marketing. Sarah Nichols, 17, reveals the secret to her team's winning strategy: "high production and low cost."
