Linn County YEC brings students together for the purpose of a hands-on entrepreneurship experience. This competition involves students preparing a written business plan or executive summary, a “tradeshow booth” (similar to a science fair tabletop display), and a pitch or presentation. Students compete against one another in teams of up to 4 or individually. Students’ work is judged by local entrepreneurs, resource partners, mentors, or other adults.
