In partnership with Grow-NY, Cornell Cooperative Extension, NYS 4-H, FFA, and New York Agriculture in the Classroom, we are pleased to again share an exciting opportunity to build youth businesses in New York State.

Our youth are the next generation of business developers, agriculture, food, and technology leaders. With the hope of inspiring and investing in the future of food, outstanding middle and high school youth will be selected to attend the 2024 Grow-NY competition and pitch their business idea to a panel of judges.

The Grow-NY competition will take place November 6-7, 2024 in Ithaca, NY. Applications are due October 1, 2024 by 11:45pm EST. The first place winner will receive a cash prize.

A project-based learning (PBL) experience experience will help students look at the world as entrepreneurs, integrating core concepts of the Grow-NY Youth Competition into your classroom or club.


You can find the PBL instructions, milestones, template, and rubric on our website.
