The Prospects
2021 HIGH SCHOOL BUSINESS PLAN & PITCH COMPETITION

A virtual statewide entrepreneurship competition with scholarships and cash prizes for high school students with new ideas and existing small businesses.

This is a collaborative initiative with Youth Entrepreneurs for investing in our students and developing a mentorship platform for connecting them with business and community leaders.

This platform is designed to find, celebrate, and reward promising high school students by providing them with mentorship, training and access to business leaders. We are promoting a positive self-image as innovative problem-solvers and entrepreneurs to motivate high school students to realize their full potential.
