Decision Science Workshop & Fair at Lilly

What is your teen doing during Fall Break?

Our teenagers face tough decisions:

      • What do I do after high school?  Do I join the military or go to college?  If college, which one?
      • Which electives should I choose at school?  Sports, music, clubs, what else?
      • How do I prioritize my time?
      • Which friends should I hang out with more?  Should I tell that guy/girl that I like them?

Give them the skills to face these questions and more, by signing up for this 2-part program:

      • Part 1 - Decision Skills Workshop
      • Part 2 - Decision Fair

Part 2 - Decision Fair, Nov 10

Armed with knowledge and skills from their workshop, the teens will return from Thu evening, 10 Nov, to participate in a Decision Fair.  It's essentially a science fair, but instead of petri dishes and potato guns, they will present a poster outlining how they applied decision science to a decision they face in their lives.

Parents and family members are invited to the Decision Fair event, which will be held at Lilly's Corporate Center Campus.  Judges will be Lilly employees steeped in the science of decision-making.  Two finalists will win a $150 cash card, and be invited to participate in the International Decision Fair, where the grand prize winner will receive an all-expense-paid trip to New Orleans and present at the annual meeting for the Society of Decision Professionals.
