ICHS students, Chloe Paulk and Logan White, will compete in the 2nd round of the FLEX competition this Thursday, February 10th, at The Grand Theatre. They will compete against the students from Fitzgerald, as well as, each other.

In Round 2 of the competition, the selected 10 companies will receive a $100 loan for seed money. They will then operate their businesses for 11 weeks, while participating in workshops and completing assignments that will provide tools to increase the success of their business. At the end of the 11 weeks, companies will complete a business evaluation and submit their financial statements for review by a non-local panel. Financial statements and business evaluations will be due January 18th.

Three companies will be selected to advance to the next round. The top three will be announced on February 10th.
