Jacqueline Blackmore, a Shorecrest junior, finished in sixth place out of 52 participants in the Principles of Business Management and Administration competition. She received the second highest test score of all participants in her category.

Shorewood has three teams that have qualified for the International Competition in Louisville.

Joe Gladow and Jeff Lee (pictured) placed fifth for their Community Service project that helped benefit the victims in Western Samoa after the tsunami.

Peter Berquist, Colin Wilkins, and Patrick Fillingham placed fourth in the International Business Plan event for writing and presenting a plan that would create a non-profit microlending company.

Jen Danner, Nick Brazzel, and Neil Gupta qualified for writing the Shorewood student store operations manual and receiving a gold level status for the store; they will present its marketing and operational practices and compete against other stores from around the country.
