Kansas State University Supports Young Local Entrepreneurs

In *All, Technology, Youth, Family, & Communities by Ag is America

The Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in Kansas features regional entrepreneurship competitions around Kansas to promote entrepreneurship and small business development in Kansas. The competition brings in many local Kansas youth who have some innovative thoughts far beyond their ages. This year’s winners will advance to the state competition next month at Kansas State University.

With sponsorship from Kansas State University, this competition gives local youth the opportunity to get a jump start on some of their business ideas. The competition aims to support young members of the community who have a concept that could lead to a future business.

Bridget Stanton, an 18-year-old former 4-H’er grew up on his family farm in Leonardville, KS. Through this program, he was able to form Bridge Digital Marketing which uses social media and graphic design services to create cost-effective marketing strategies for small businesses. Stanton’s project won the regional content for the past two years, earning $3,000 in winnings from one of the sponsors.

Kansas State University, Network Kansas and the Kansas Masonic Foundation are partners in providing awards for the Kansas Entrepreneurship Challenge, which will offer $5,000 for first place, $4,000 for second, and $3,000 for third this year. The money is intended to boost the youth’s business idea.
