Description

The Diamond Challenge is an innovative entrepreneurship competition for high school students offering a unique opportunity for teens to learn about entrepreneurship while putting their ideas into action. While many entrepreneurship programs focus on principles of small business management, the Diamond Challenge focuses on unleashing creativity, encouraging a mindset of abundance and self-determination, and promoting purposeful entrepreneurial action.

To compete, teams of students work together to create their own business ideas. Students compete through three rounds starting with their written concept and pitch deck submission. The best submissions are invited to create a pitch video and pitch live for a panel of judges. The best teams from the second round are invited to the Diamond Challenge Summit where they compete for a chance to win the final round at the Diamond Challenge Summit and $13,000 in prize money.

This is a great opportunity for students who are interested in entrepreneurship or believe they have the next big business idea.

To get started, students should check out Diamond Challenge's business innovation curriculum that they provide for free online before they begin putting together their submission.
