Future Millionaire’s Club Competes for First Time


On March 16, fifteen members of the Future Millionaires Club attended the Diamond Challenge Regional, a business concept competition similar to the reality television show Shark Tank, the show where entrepreneurs present their ideas to successful business people to try to get them to buy into their company.

Several schools from the tri-state area competed at this competition. Although the students did not win, Social Studies Teacher and Advisor Mr. Michael Constantino said he was proud of the club’s members, who had never been to anything like it before.

“We didn’t place, but overall did really well,” Advisor Mr. Constantino said. “Other schools had been working on their ideas for four or more years.”

The Future Millionaire’s Club was offered as a Flex enrichment for the first time this year. Prior to the competition, students came up with ideas and wrote their pitches to present to the judges. They had five minutes to pitch their idea, then the judges asked them questions.

One group’s presentation was about a GPS app to find sales at a mall, while another group’s was an app that to find someone’s location.
