Greeley County, in association with the Network Kansas E-Community Partnership, announces the fourth annual Greeley County Youth Entrepreneurship Competition will take place in March, as part of the 2022-2023 Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Series.
The competition will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, March 20, at Greeley County Schools. The goal of the competition is to expose Kansas middle school and high school students to entrepreneurship.
“Thanks to the leadership of teachers Mr. Drew and Mrs. Melissa Zerr, this event continues to grow. Students will compete for prizes and will be awarded in three categories – for the eighth graders, to the freshman, and to the juniors. Greeley County Schools juniors will compete to earn an opportunity to advance to the state-wide competition,” said John Kennedy, Greeley County Community Development Director.
Greeley County is one of many communities across Kansas to host a locally organized event designed to give students a hands-on entrepreneurship experience.
The students will be competing for $2,400 in prize money. The students’ work will be judged by local entrepreneurs, public sector partners, and other adults.
“The YEC Series helps students learn valuable life skills such as creative problem solving and confidently presenting their ideas to others. The classroom learning and mentorship they receive in preparation of competing in their local YEC Series event can also help students feel more connected to their communities and help them identify a need they could fill in their own city or county,” says Amara Kniep, Product Manager, E-Community Programs.
The annual YEC series culminates in a statewide championship, where the top students from each local competition face off against each other for prize money and other honors.
The 2023 statewide championship will be held April 20, 2023 at Kansas State University.
