esquared2For the second year in a row, Culpeper Partner Gary Lee was a semi-finals judge in the E-Squared Competition among students in the Culpeper County High School System.  The panel of seven judges heard oral presentations from four teams of students whom had earlier developed written business plans to attract potential investors to support their entrepreneurial ventures.  Each member of the winning team will be awarded a $5,000 scholarship to further their educational pursuits after high school.

E-Squared is a program sponsored by Career Partners, Inc. which is a consortium of the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce, local business leaders and administrators and educators in the County school system designed to provide real world business experiences as a formal part of the students’ educational curriculum.
