Entering the contest is simple and requires no voting. With permission from their legal guardian, youth can apply by submitting a persuasive one-minute pitch video that explains their business idea and why they are the perfect person to bring it to life. Applicants will be judged on the originality, feasibility, and presentation of their pitch by a panel of judges including Kim from Startup Skool, Ray Walia from Launch Academy, and Shafin Diamond from Victory Square.
