U.S. Ambassador Bruce J. Oreck visited the Schildt Upper Secondary school in Jyväskylä on March 5, 2015. He discussed entrepreneurship and future global challenges with the students. The visit was a follow-up to the Ambassador’s Entrepreneurial Challenge (AEC), which brought students from all over Finland to Helsinki to pitch their business ideas to the Ambassador and a panel of judges in November 2014. The winners of the AEC came from the Schildt Upper Secondary school (formerly Cygnaeus-lukio), and will be traveling to the United States to participate in a summer business school academy.
