In the “Wirtschaftswissen im Wettbewerb” competition organized by the Junior Chamber, almost 20,000 schoolchildren throughout Germany face 30 multiple-choice questions on the topics of economics, politics, international affairs, finance and digitization. The aim is to introduce the pupils of the 9th grade to economic contexts.
At district level, TRIPS is committed to the three best from the district of Schweinfurt with a prize and an internship, in addition to the Radiology Schweinfurt and Amthor. Julien Störcher from the Realschule Schonungen was the district winner and beat Simon Radzepović from the Walther-Rathenau-Realschule and Lea Diezel from the Celtis-Gymnasium Schweinfurt in the preliminary round. A total of 615 pupils took part in the region.
As winner Julien Störcher may now go to the national final in Leipzig, which will take place from 20-22.03.2020.
