Who doesn’t like a little friendly competition? What about against other people your age around the country with $100,000 in prizes at stake? Sounds like fun to some. For Wilmington and other students around the nation, University of Delaware Horn Entrepreneurship has come up with a unique way to challenge aspiring entrepreneurs in high school. They created the innovative entrepreneurial competition the Diamond Challenge.
The goal of this competition is to a unique learning opportunity for students to learn about entrepreneurship while putting their ideas into action. Students are encouraged to pursue their creative and purposeful ideas for this competition. Previous winners include Wilmington local Miracle Olatunji with her start-up company OpportuniME. The deadline for students to submit ideas is December 30th!
Not a student? That is alright! You can still participate as a judge for the program. The premier global high school entrepreneurship competition is seeking volunteer virtual judges. Judges (all from your home/office) evaluate, analyze, and provide feedback to participants during a 2-week period in January. This is a fantastic opportunity to give back to the next generation of entrepreneurs and support their growth. Sign up here!
