Spring 2022 PITCH CHALLENGE

spring 2022 WYOMING YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR PITCH CHALLENGE

Young people in Wyoming are courageous, adaptable, persistent, optimistic and empathetic. Help them develop these skills through entrepreneurship!

WYAA invites youth serving organizations to engage young people in the Spring 2022 Pitch Challenge. They are invited to think of a product, business or social solution that could make a difference to their community or to Wyoming and then enter a 45- to 90-second video to pitch their idea into the contest. Teams are encouraged!

Ultimately, we hope young people across the state will see themselves contributors to the future of their community. Whether or not a young person becomes an entrepreneur, the skills they develop are essential to their becoming self-sufficient, healthy citizens.

A variety of activities, curricula, and video modules are available to help youth serving organizations coach participants along the way. Find the toolkit here. Connect with WYAA to learn about professional development opportunities and to learn from others around the state about how they are growing these skills among young people in their communities, including informational sessions with Wyoming entrepreneurs and one-on-one mentoring. Register your program here.

Review the recommended schedule for engaging participants in the Spring 2022 Pitch Challenge. The WYAA Modules make it easy to explore the entrepreneurial mindset. Participants can walk through the activities and interactive videos on their own or programs, classes, and clubs can use them to craft an engaging syllabus. Find the modules here.
