Volunteer with NFTE NY Metro as a guest judge for the 2017 Young Entrepreneur Showcase! In total, we need 4 guest judges for the evening.
In this role, you will have the opportunity to hear 5 top NFTE NY Metro student business groups pitch their innovative business ideas, ask questions, and work with a panel to select the student business that will win the top prize. This competition is structured in a ‘science-fair’ format where students will be in teams of 3-4 and pitch their ideas in front of a tri-fold board, and will have 2 minutes to pitch their idea to you. After that, you will have 2 minutes for Q&A with the students.
Students participating in the YES are in grades 5-9 and have completed their Exploring Careers curriculum in school which requires them to come up with an original business idea with a group of their peers. The first-place winners from each category will win a prize of $50 for each member of the group!
If you're interested in volunteering as a guest judge for the Young Entrepreneur Showcase, please reach out to Liliana (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, May 19th.
