Sanction applications may now be submitted for the 10th Annual Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Series. YEC is a sequence of community-based entrepreneurship competitions for students in grades 6-12, culminating in a state championship. NetWork Kansas has released new overview video and other materials to help promote YEC.
Lakin Denny, from Colby, is a past YEC participant and scholarship winner. In this success story, learn more about Lakin, her YEC experience and how to support this young entrepreneur.
The YEC Series started as a grassroots competition in a school gymnasium in a tiny town in northwest Kansas. Over the years, those grassroots spread and now 1,000 students across the state from communities of all sizes participate in a unified championship series, connecting all of Kansas through youth entrepreneurship.
