More than 100 high school students participated in a hands-on business symposium hosted by The University of Southern Mississippi’s Center for Economic and Entrepreneurship Education (CEEE) on Tuesday, Feb. 4.

The event was the second in an annual series of youth symposiums sponsored by CEEE’s statewide Southern Entrepreneurship Program. Several high schools from central and south Mississippi were represented at the event.

The symposium featured a panel discussion from business, banking and academic professionals; a session on business/dining etiquette and a marketing exercise whereby students sought to create/brand a new snack food.
