Learning and video games don't always go together, but some local high school students are using the high tech games to learn about business.
The students, from various high schools throughout the area, held competitions in their classrooms. Then, the winners of those games went head to head in the Junior Achievement High-Tech Business Challenge Wednesday at Columbia Basin College.
The video game teaches students how to run a business and sell products.
"They decide how they're going to market it. they decide how they're going to produce it, the price they're going to charge, what research and development they're going to put in to it," said Junior Achievement Mentor Brad Hastey
The winner takes home a $200 gift card. Several other runners up will also go home with trophies. This is the fifth year for the event.
