Description

EntreEd, The National Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education, is hosting The ESTEAM Pitch Competition as part of their ARC-funded ESTEAM project. 

The ESTEAM project helps middle- and high schools across the region infuse entrepreneurship education into core academic areas, with a focus on STEAM classrooms. 

The ESTEAM Pitch Competition highlights student innovation and invention from across our seven-state region to help fund their ideas and kickstart entrepreneurial thinking in communities across Appalachia. 

Eligible teams include middle- and high school students ages 14+ within the ESTEAM grant project region (If you are 13 and in middle school, you will need a teacher to register your business). To compete, individual students or a team of students must have a teacher identified. 

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three finalists, regardless of team or individual submission. Teachers for the top three teams will earn $1,000 for their classroom.
