Agri-Business Week and Washington Potatoes

May 13, 2013

More people in Washington State are involved in agriculture and agri-business than any other industry. Washington Potato Commission is a proud sponsor of the agri-business week summer program for students. Learn what it takes to be in the business of feeding the world.

Washington Business Week is not only a ton of fun, but it is also about real-world experience. During the week-long teen camp you’ll take part in an intense real-world simulation where YOU are responsible for launching a new product, where you make choices that save people’s lives, compete for a new building contract, or find ways to increase the profits of your client organizations.

Although you’re competing with hundreds of other students from around Washington, you’re also having a blast working on fun and exciting group projects. At this summer camp you’ll make lifelong friends, check out college life, go to dances, participate in a talent show, watch movies, compete in a volleyball tournament, and oh so much more. Washington Business Week will be one of the best (and busiest) times of your life!

This year’s Agri-business week is in Ellensburg, WA July at Central Washington University, July 21-27. Get a jump start on your agriculture business career.
