MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A group of Memphis City Schools students and Girl's Inc., members will fly to New York City on July 12th as a prize for their excellent entrepreneurial skills.

The young women won the trip during the 2009 Girl's Inc., Corporate Camp for Entrepreneurs, a national competition which requires teams of five girls develop a business product or service and business plan.

The Memphis team produced the "Oh Zone," a game for kids and adults who can't or just don't want to talk about personal subjects in their life. It encourages them to talk about the those touchy issues and gain knowledge, as well.

Only four teams were chosen to attend the Big Apple corporate camp. While there, the girls will learn about starting up a business, meet leading women entrepreneurs and improve their business skills and abilities.
