The game of Kentuckianaopoly is a creation of the the Silver Creek High School Academy of Finance class. The game plays like Monopoly, but the students have included local businesses by selling spaces to them. The proceeds from the sales go toward local charities and scholarships.
“We thought it would be a good way for students to get out in the community and network,” Glaser said. “The learning process was learning to network, market a product and appreciate the entrepreneurs behind the businesses right here in our community.”
Each selected business was at least 25 years old. Some were approaching a century of being in existence. Students had to visit the businesses, find the appropriate contact, set up a meeting, and present the concept. They also had to dress professionally.
