On April 26, 2018, the BHS business department took nine students to compete in the Cherokee Nation New Business Ideas Competition in Claremore:
  • Ashton Marlar
  • Ashlynn Sweat
  • Sophia Walker
  • Felicity Bernal
  • Kaylee Taylor
  • Jaden Wright
  • Elijah Yanez 
  • James Austin
  • Casper Naegle
The competition is part of the Cherokee Nation Entrepreneurship Day activities designed to stimulate entrepreneurial interest among students and is much like a "Shark Take" competition, except for high school students. The competition was open to all students within the jurisdiction of the Cherokee Nation.  Students were allowed to compete individually or in teams of two. They presented a business idea, along with a tri-fold board and a business plan. Students were interviewed by judges about their business idea and then given a score based on several factors. Prizes were awarded to the top Business Idea in each category.  The BHS students had some innovative business ideas.

Bartlesville High School junior, Ashton Marlar, finished 5th place and won a cash prize.
