Students in grades 9-12 are invited to enter the Lieutenant Governor’s Entrepreneurship Challenge (LGEC), a tiered business pitch competition designed to introduce students to a realistic competitive business environment and to promote business ownership and lifelong learning.

Teams of two to four students with at least two adult advisers will present a written business outline and an oral presentation at one of five regional competitions April 10-13. The top two teams in each region will advance to the state competition April 29 in Lexington, where they will compete for prizes valued at more than $80,000 that will be split among the top three teams.

The registration deadline is Feb. 1, and application materials must be completed online by March 1. Click here for more information.
