High school entrepreneur contest seeking entrants
Central PA Fish Tank, a youth entrepreneurial scholarship contest, is looking for talented teams of potential midstate businesspeople to take part in the event.
The deadline to enter the contest is May 31, and the competition is scheduled for Oct. 1.
Teams of two or three high school students will develop a business model for their potential company, build a prototype and then present a business pitch to a panel of judges.
First place is worth a $3,000 scholarship per team, second place is a $1,500 scholarship and third place is a $750 scholarship.
The first-, second- and third-place teams will be invited to participate in Startup Weekend Harrisburg, hosted by Harrisburg University, in the fall. The event is a crash course in entrepreneurship.
