Youth Event

A 3 hour critical thinking and business development competition focused on helping the area’s young people hone their skills and learn more about the entrepreneurial mindset.

We want to help these young people develop their problem solving skills and make entrepreneurship an option.

We are inviting five students from each area high school to participate. These students will then be broken into small groups with students from other schools. They will then pick whatever problem they want to solve and then go through a problem-solving template to identify a potential solution. The students will then share their work and a few winning groups will be chosen at the end.
