The National Challenge is one of NFTE’s signature events and the most high-stakes business plan and pitch competition of the year. Students begin their journey on the #RoadtoNationals in a local NFTE classroom or camp competition. The best young entrepreneurs from across the country advance through a series of elimination rounds, first at the local and then at the regional and national levels in order to qualify for Nationals. The National Challenge usually culminates with the top three national finalists taking the stage in front of a live audience and a panel of VIP judges for the final round of competition. This year, however, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the National Challenge will be a virtual event, with the final round livecast. Expect the same festive atmosphere and the same level of suspense as the three finalists vie for the grand prize.
