Annual entrepreneurial competition today

High school students showcase their talent and ideas on campus | October 24, 2002

Seventy percent of high school students want to start their own businesses, according to a recent Gallup study, and 80 percent want to learn more about entrepreneurship. To meet these desires, the University’s entrepreneurial center is hosting its annual High School Entrepreneurial Competition today from 7:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. in the Cintas Center. Students from local high schools form three-person teams and come up with a business strategy for an imaginary company during the exhibition. They then compete against one another for $1,500 in cash prizes. The event offers students the chance to uncover their own ability to imagine as well as obtaining the necessary skills to believe and achieve goals. For more information, call 513 745-2927.
