Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge



YEC Series

During the 2019-2020 academic year, E-Communities have the opportunity to host local-level entrepreneurship competitions and submit their event to be part of the “Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge series” culminating in the Kansas Entrepreneurship Challenge (KEC) State Championship, April 28, 2020. Local entrepreneurship competitions must meet certain guidelines in order to qualify as part of the series and to be eligible to use E-Community funds to pay for part or all of the competition. The YEC series gives Kansas students hands-on experience thinking entrepreneurially.
