On Tuesday, March 1, the Business, Education, and Law (BEL) Visit Day returned to Culver-Stockton College after a two-year absence due to COVID-19. Schuyler County, Camp Point, Clark County, and Canton High Schools attended the event.
The day consisted of various activities that encouraged students to engage in conversations about ethical situations in the subject areas of business, education, criminal justice, law, and sports
Attending schools were invited to participate in a presentation competition focused on government and economic systems, including capitalism, socialism, and communism. Three contending schools presented to a panel of judges and then were selected to win a cash prize for their respective school’s Future Business Leader of America (FBLA) chapter. Clark County took third place and
received $250, with Canton placing second to receive the $500 award. Schuyler County was named the first-place team, with their FBLA chapter receiving a $1000 prize. The competitive team was led by sophomores Allie Lanham and Kelsey Tallman, who created and pitched their ideal economic system for the United States to the judging panel. Chosen for their out-of-the-box thinking, the
students decided to develop their economic system from a biological standpoint, “We created commensalism because it means that a species is not benefited nor harmed,” Lanham said. “Commensalism would still be capitalistic but also equal,” she went on to explain. Tallman was equally excited and shared, “It was a great experience! We all had a lot of fun and enjoyed our visit
The ethics contest was judged by C-SC faculty and led by Dr. Matthew Osborn, Moorman Professor and Assistant Professor of Business. The Moorman Foundation grant provided the prize money
awarded to the winning schools.
Students were also invited to participate in a mock trial simulation while attending collaborative discussions regarding the topics of Business, Education, and Law.
