The Introduction to Marketing Class at Princeton High School participated in small business entrepreneurial projects throughout this school year. Students are required to design, manufacture, promote, and sell their products to students and staff at PHS and the wider community. In the Fall, the students formed a company named Prestige Townwide. Together they designed, promoted, and sold three products: Out of the Blue Care Packages, Blue & Gray marbled thermal coffee mugs; and Pura-Vida bracelets in PHS colors. In the Spring, the students break into four competing small businesses to develop their products. The companies and products created and sold by students were Simply Sweet selling painted mason jars filled with sweets; Classy Tiger selling class t-shirts; Cozzzy selling customizable PHS blankets, and Lippadellic selling all-natural, homemade lip balm. All profits earned from the projects throughout the year are donated to the Bureau County United Way. This year the students made a profit of $1,200 from the sale of their projects to donate. A check was presented to Kimberly Scott of the Bureau County United Way on May, 10 at Princeton High School.
