WEYBURN – School is back in session and that means the 2022 YouthBiz contest is now open.
YouthBiz is a business competition designed for Grade 6 to 12 students in the Community Futures (CF) Sunrise area, in southeast Saskatchewan.
The contest promotes entrepreneurship, financial literacy and this year has pivoted to focus on digital skill building as well.
Since it was started by CF Sunrise in 2007, over 2,825 students from southeast Saskatchewan have competed for more than $30,000 in prize money.
To enter YouthBiz, students simply come up a fantastic business idea, write about it following along with questions in the YouthBiz Guide, and submit their entry to CF Sunrise on or before the contest deadline of November 17, 2022.
Students and teachers have already contacted CF Sunrise to arrange for school workshops and contest resource material.
“We’re excited to have teachers and young people contact our office to find out how they can get involved in YouthBiz. YouthBiz and youth entrepreneurship is thriving in the southeast Saskatchewan region,” said Verna O’Neill of CF Sunrise.
