Brianna Dennison, Jackson Woodruff, Conner Loughridge and Courtney Prim participated in Baker College’s annual Business & Technology Challenge on Tuesday, December 17 at Baker College in Muskegon.
This group of students was the first to participate in this challenge in recent memory.
The Challenge entailed completing a four-part exercise in bookkeeping and accounting practices and concepts.
- Answering 40 multiple-choice questions about accounting practices and concepts
- Journalizing transactions to a general journal
- Preparing financial statements for a company
- Posting transactions to a general ledger
Completion of these exercises requires a high level of familiarity with bookkeeping procedures and concepts, and all the students completed the challenge admirably. Senior Brianna Dennison, who plans to pursue a career in financial management, earned 3rd Place for her performance in the challenge.
