Run by students in the Entrepreneurship program, this fast-paced, interactive workshop will test participants' knowledge, creativity, and ability to think on their feet as they compete for prizes.  The Creativity and Entrepreneurship Workshop will have four stations, each providing a fun and competitive event, such as:

  • Entrepreneurship Quiz Show: Students are divided into teams and asked questions in a jeopardy/family feud type format
  • Pitch Contest: Students are given a subject or idea and asked to make a one-minute pitch
  • New Idea Contest: Students are divided into teams and charged with coming up with an idea for a new product and making a pitch
  • Build Something: Students are divided into teams and given random items to build something

Participants will move through each station, staying at each for about 20 minutes. Students manage each station and will act as judges, with prizes given out to winning teams or individuals.
