Announcing qualifiers for the Kansas Youth Virtual Entrepreneurship Challenge

For Immediate Release

Camp Destination Innovation, NetWork Kansas, and Moonbase Labs want to thank each and every student who submitted a video for a chance to compete in the Kansas Youth Virtual Entrepreneurship Challenge! We received many submissions but were only able to approve the first 75, based on the timestamp of submission and having a video link submitted with your application. While we carved out space for 25 per division (elementary, middle school, and high school), we only received 23 middle school videos and 20 elementary school videos. In order to give the most students a chance to compete, this led us to accept a few more high school submissions.
