Career Exploration Challenge

The Middle Country Business Advisory Board is a combined effort of the Middle Country Central School District and the Greater Middle Country Chamber of Commerce. Now in its 7th year, we are again seeking local businesses interested in mentoring students through our Career Exploration Challenge Program. We need business leaders who will allow students to shadow them for 10 hours. Students are required to make presentations at the conclusion of the program. These presentations are judged by a committee and are awarded small scholarship amounts based on the committee selections. Funding for these awards is through community support.
