DALLAS (AP) — A group of students at an all-girls school in Dallas recently got a lesson in commercial real estate by competing to come up with the best use for a vacant building.

Twenty-eight girls from the Irma Rangel Young Women's Leadership School in the Dallas school district toured a vacant building recently near the city's new Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge as part of the CREW Careers Building Opportunities program, which aims to educate girls about careers and opportunities in commercial real estate.

The Dallas Morning News (http://dallasne.ws/VYq4pr ) reports that CREW in the Community, the philanthropic arm of Commercial Real Estate Women Dallas, hosted the recent event at the 31-year-old structure.

It was the fifth year that students at the school at participated in the program.
