Put your idea to the test by competing in the fifth annual Youth Entrepreneur Showcase (Y.E.S.) for Arkansas 2.0 business plan competition for a chance to win cash prizes!
There is no cost to enter.
Competing in Y.E.S. 2.0 is a challenge, and you can do it! You are going to learn what it takes to put together a business plan.
This experience will come in very handy in the future – whether or not you decide to start a business. And, you will definitely have something to talk about in future job interviews and on your resume!
You can work independently or in a team with up to five more of your friends / classmates. You do have to be enrolled in an Arkansas high school (public, private, or home), and the competition is open to students in grades 9 – 12.
Teams will need sponsors – either a teacher or someone in the community who isn’t a parent or relative of any team member.
Y.E.S. 2.0 is online only through iStart.org, a project of the Kauffman Foundation. The competition home page is http://yesforarkansas2-2015.istart.org. You’ll need an iStart account.
Intents to Compete are due February 6. Business plans are due February 27. Good luck!
