Central Kansas Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge
Pawnee County Economic Development has partnered with Edwards, Hodgeman, Stafford and Ness County in the 4th Annual Central Kansas Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in 2019! All 7th - 12th Grade students and young entrepreneurs in Pawnee County are invited and encouraged to participate! Do you know of a student with a business or product idea? We want to hear those ideas at the 4th Annual Central Kansas Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge held on February 6th in Larned.
At CKYEC, students from the five area counties will be judged on their business idea, executive summary, and a 4-minute formal presentation with slides with three students winning a total of $1,750 in cash prizes!
If you know of any students interested in competing, please have them contact our office at 620-285-6916 or email@example.com, or your local county Economic Development before our sign up deadline on January 2019!
