Students in middle and high school are invited to enter their
business plans in a contest held by the Wisconsin Youth
Entrepreneurs in Science until 5 p.m. April 6.
Public, private and homeschooled students across Wisconsin are
eligible to turn their science- and tech-related ideas into
business plans and compete for cash and prizes. The contest
begins with a 250-word summary submitted through the website.
Entries that advance to Phase 2 of the competition will expand
their idea into a 1,000-word executive summary. Throughout the
process, students get feedback from professionals across

All entries are submitted through the website. Students use
their account to gain access to the judges’ comments and
feedback. Templates and sample entries for both phases are
available on the website, along with other entrepreneurial
resources. Students are able to work in teams or as individuals
and will be judged based upon their grade level, with the oldest
team member determining the team category. Students or teams may
enter multiple ideas.
