Huntley High School business students win “Taste of Business” challenge

. The Future Business Leaders of America Club competed against students from Jacobs High School, Elgin Community College and Judson University. The “Taste of Business” program has students from these institutions involved with choosing the flavor of the month that is offered at the store of Gourmet Kernel at Algonquin Commons, and they also come up with a creative, marketable name for the flavor. The students are presented with three flavors to sample. The Gourmet Kernel alternates between the four schools during the school year. At the end of the school year, whichever flavor sold the best becomes the flavor of summer.  And at the end of the summer, the Gourmet Kernel awards the students with the winning flavor a percentage of summer sales or a minimum of $1,000. The winning students will use portions of the award to pay for their fees for conference and competition registrations and to buy material to make blankets to donate to the less fortunate in the area.
