Houses Prepare for The King’s Apprentice
New York—The King’s College will kick off The King’s Apprentice, the latest event in a serious of House competitions, on Friday, October 19, at 7:30 pm.
During the competition, each King’s College House will have 24 hours to make a profit off the sale of a product about which they have no previous knowledge. Each House must design and execute a marketing strategy for the product which includes setting up a public display somewhere in the city.
At the end of the 24 hours, House members will give a boardroom presentation to a panel of outside judges. Judges include a well known businessman, an artist, and a writer.
Houses will be judged on their overall profit and the quality of their advertising strategy. The House with the highest score will be crowned the winner.
The King’s Apprentice is one of six House competition events staged throughout the academic year. At the end of the spring semester, the House that accumulates the most points through the separate events is honored as the overall competition winner and receives a monetary prize.
All students enrolled at The King’s College are placed in one of nine Houses—five female Houses and four male Houses. Each House is led by four student leaders which are responsible for different aspects of the House. Houses have become the foundation for student life and student government at the college.
The King's College is a Christian liberal arts college located in the Empire State Building in New York City.
