Stafford County Economic Development had nine Stafford County students compete in the Central Kansas Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge that took place on Friday, March 16 in Kinsley. 7th through 12th grade students were eligible to participate in this year's event. Five students from St. John competed as a team, one student from St. John and three students from Stafford competed as individuals.
Students were judged on their business idea/concept, a three-page executive summary, and a four-minute formal presentation to a panel of three judges. Individuals and teams competed for a total of $1,750 in cash prizes and their chance to compete at the state competition in April at Kansas State University.
Preston Dunn, 8th grader from St. John-Hudson U.S.D. 350 won first place and a prize of $1,000. Cashe McVey, Jaden Reed, Roger Ramirez, Brianna Banks and Liam Lanterman competed as the Tiger Town Pizza team and won second place with a $500 prize.
