During the competition, the students simulated real-life scenarios and made critical decisions, with the use of the appropriate educational software. The knowledge that our students acquired from their participation in this competition will help them in their professional and daily life.
The three teams were awarded by the Lyceum Director, Mr. George Vakerlis, the Lyceum Deputy Director, Mr. Michail Siamos, and the Economics teacher in charge of the competition, Mr. George Papachristou.
