And I mean that in the most positive way possible! The Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania is a launching a new site Knowledge@Wharton High School for students interested in business careers, and it looks to be a pretty awesome networking and information portal. The site will feature articles, videos, podcasts, and interactive elements that “will explore such topics as starting a business, managing money, running a sports team, playing the stock market, going green, finding an internship, becoming a fashion buyer and volunteering for a non-profit, just to name a few.”

The site launches in February 2009, but if you want to get involved before then you can enter the Knowledge@ Wharton High School essay contest. Winners will receive prizes like airline tickets, computers, and printers, as well as an opportunity to take part in the February launch event. Essays are due December 1, 2008. For more details, visit Knowledge@Wharton High School.

So what do you think about this program?  Would you be interested in getting involved?
