Regional Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge Finals

About The Competition

First year NFTE students learn how to create a business plan and pitch their ideas to a panel of judges. And every one of them has a shot at winning the top prize in our National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge. Each spring, thousands of students take their first step on the “Road to Nationals” by competing in classroom pitch competitions. Those who win their classroom competitions are eligible to compete against the top students across their region in the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds of the Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge series. The best young entrepreneurs advance to regional finals, where they go head-to-head for the top regional prize – and a chance to move on to the national competition in the fall.

Regional Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge Finals are held at locations across the country throughout May and June. We invite you to attend a competition near you. See the top pitches, meet young entrepreneurs, and enjoy an exciting competitive event where students can win cash prizes to fund a startup business or further their education.

Join us in celebrating the transformative power of entrepreneurship education!
