A new laptop computer was the prize for each member of the team of middle school students who developed a business plan for “The Health Nut Bakery” during 11th Annual State Farm Summer Business Camp.

On the final day of the camp Jeff Shay, State Farm Vice President of Operations announced that Triston Murry, Blake Russell and Anna Waldecker’s plan for a bakery catering to those with life-threatening food allergies and special dietary requirements was the winning plan.  

State Farm Summer Business Camp gives rising 7th, 8th and 9th graders the opportunity to acquire business, financial literacy and leadership skills through hands-on activities. Participants learn about the different parts of business from people in the community who practice every day what they are teaching the students. The goal of this entrepreneurial academy is for the kids to work in teams on a start-up business plan which they present for a competition on the final day.

State Farm Summer Business Camp is coordinated by the Business Education Partnership Foundation of Rutherford County (BEP). The camp is offered at no charges thanks to a long time financial and volunteer relationship with State Farm, and this year General Mills provided additional funding to defray increasing costs of the camp.
